Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS)
April 23 @ 11:15 am - 1:15 pm
Looking for a way to help your young child grow in relationship with God?
Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) is a Montessori-based approach to the religious formation of children, rooted in Sacred Scripture, Liturgy, and respect for the child’s rich relationship with God. Central to CGS is the atrium, a room containing beautiful materials that focus the child’s attention on key scripture passages or liturgical moments. After an introduction by the catechist, the children are invited to work with a material on their own to continue their meditation. Because children learn by using their hands, working with materials allows them to enter more deeply into meditation, nurturing their relationship with God.
We invite children ages 3-5 years who are either in preschool or young 5s programs to participate in our Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. This faith formation opportunity will be held once a month starting September 25 after the 10:00 AM Mass from 11:15 AM-12:45 PM. Materials cost is $35 per child for the year and scholarships are available.
