Catechesis of the Good Shepherd


This is an exciting new ministry for our youngest children, which our parish is now making preparations to implement. Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is an approach to the spiritual formation of children that is rooted in the Bible, the Liturgy of the Church and the educational methods of Maria Montessori. Children gather in an atrium, a room prepared especially for them, which contains simple yet beautiful child-size materials that help the child to absorb the most essential proclamations of the Christian faith.

 During the week of June 25-June 30, 2018, our parish will be hosting a Level One Formation Course, to prepare instructors to teach children ages 3 to 6 using this method. Interested people from other parishes are welcome join us for this course as well. Please open the course brochure below to find out more about course topics, registration, and costs.
