Catechesis of The Good Shepherd
The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is an approach to the religious formation of children. It highlights essential aspects of the Christian message that nurture the child’s need to love and be loved and the child’s capacity to enjoy God’s presence in her/his life. It is rooted in the Bible, the liturgy of the Church, and the educational principles of Maria Montessori. One of the key features of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is the use of catechetical materials specially designed for children. Another feature is the use of a prepared environment, called the Atrium, to foster children’s religious growth. We are in need of volunteers who enjoy children and who want to help them to know and love God more deeply.
