What is Catechesis of the Good Shepherd?
Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is a reflective-based program of religious formation that helps a child to further develop his/her relationship with God in a developmentally appropriate way. The program is rooted in Sacred Scripture, the Liturgy and Prayer. Children meet in small groups along with a catechist within a prepared environment known as an atrium. Within the atrium, the 3-6 year olds are filled with wonder and awe as they joyfully encounter the Good Shepherd and discover his unconditional love and care. The atrium provides a space, based upon the educational philosophy of Maria Montessori, for children to pray, work, and contemplate the presence of God in their lives.
We are also looking for volunteers to assist in creating materials for the program. If you would like to find out more about Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, please visit https://www.cgsusa.org/ or contact Madalyn Hardig at firstname.lastname@example.org or 513-661-6565, ext. 2740.
