Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is a faith formation program based on the Montessori method of teaching. Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is founded on the belief that children already have a relationship with God and are eager to learn about Him. The program is for preschool-age through kindergarten kids in our “atrium,” which is a room specifically designed and used for CGS. We are equipped with Level 1 Atrium.
The program is amazing because it is so interactive and leaves room for the natural creativity and joy of kids. Some of the manipulatives in the atrium used to teach about the faith include maps of the Holy Land, priest vestments, a liturgical calendar “puzzle,” and a mini tabernacle and altar.
Classes occur weekly in-person beginning September 24 – and will be in-person every (most) week(s) through April. Sundays 9:45 – 11:15AM (during the 10AM Mass) (also in Spanish on Saturdays 10 – 11:30AM). Limited space available. We also have a “no registration required” option for Preschoolers and Kindergarteners – which is to attend the 10AM Mass on Sunday and participate in Children’s Liturgy during that Mass.
