Catechesis of the Good Shepherd 21/22

The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) is a Montessori based religious formation program for young children. CGS responds to the voice within the child that says, “Help me come closer to God by myself.” Children, ages 3-6, meet in a prepared environment called the “Atrium." In the Atrium, a catechist provides prepared lessons, along with hands-on materials, enabling the child to truly encounter the Good Shepherd through his or her Catholic faith. Children experience freedom, while learning self-discipline, in a place that is designed to meet their unique spiritual and developmental needs. CGS relies on the fact that young children are able to have a deep religious experience and sense of a higher being, which should be encouraged to grow. The catechist only needs to provide guidance and the child will grow in their relationship with God. It is not uncommon for parents with children in this program to find their children are coming home and teaching them something they didn’t know! As one young SMOY parishioner observed in the atrium, "Plants need sun and water to grow.  Jesus is the light and He helps us grow!"


Cost per child is $100. When registration is full or one month before the sessions begin on Friday, September 24, you will receive an email with the full calendar, permission slips, and payment instructions.
