Catechesis of the Good Shepherd
What is the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd?
The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is a Christian catechesis program for children aged 3-12 years which enables them to experience and form an authentic relationship with God. The Catechesis is rooted in Scripture and the Liturgy of the Church and is inspired by Maria Montessori’s principles of education.
This program provides:
An opportunity for children to fall in love with Jesus, the Good Shepherd, in a child-friendly space called an atrium – located in a church or school.
Guided activity to aid meditation on Bible scripture and the mysteries of the Christian faith once a week - in small groups, facilitated by trained adults (catechists).
And above all that each child's unique spiritual needs and abilities are respected and nurtured.
I’m interested, where can I find the next training?
A list of the next training sessions across UK and Europe can be found on this CGS UK website. In time, the Centre for Catholic Formation will offer such training and advice to people interested in working with the Catechesis in their homes and parishes.
