Making Disciples Through Prayer, Faith Formation & Service

Pillar One – CATECHESIS OF THE GOOD SHEPHERD I

The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd I is a Montessori-based religious formation program for children which begins at age three.  It seeks to create and facilitate a sacred, “hands-on” space for children called an atrium, in which both the children and the catechist can hear, ponder and celebrate the most essential mysteries of the Christian faith as revealed in the scriptures and the liturgy.

 

Pillar Two – CATECHESIS OF THE GOOD SHEPHERD II

The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd II continues in the style of Level 1, with a focus on celebrating and pondering the gift of Holy Communion.

Pillar Three – Catechesis of the Family

Catechesis of the Family invites parents to grow in their faith while they guide their children in core faith formation. This flexible and engaging program nurtures faith and helps build community. Catechesis of the Family combines parish based group gatherings and grade specific instructions by trained catechists and at home sessions guided by the parents.
