Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd program (CGS for short), is a religious education program rooted in scripture, liturgy, and prayer. The Atrium is a space prepared for encounter. It is more akin to a retreat house than a classroom. In it are special materials for hands-on work with essential New Testament Scriptures and liturgical moments. After a theme has been introduced, the child, led by the Holy Spirit, can return to it as often as necessary. Time in the atrium, set apart for prayer and work, nurtures a child’s relationship with Jesus our Good Shepherd, and prepares him or her for worship in the greater Church community.
