Prayerfully consider volunteering this coming year. Of our 50 volunteer for 2016 only 7 were adults. We are truly blessed the enthusiasm of our wonderful parish youth, but we need you the adults too so we can continue to grow and not have to turn families away. Childcare is available.
The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd
What is it all about? The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is a religious formation program for children ages 3-12, inspired by Maria Montessori, using her principles of education. Catechists who are leading the sessions have taken a year-long training on content and have mentored/observed techniques of other catechists.
How does the program run? The atrium is a room which is specially prepared for children and contains materials that can help to teach them about the faith. There are child-sized pieces of furniture in the room and it is filled with child-sized items used to help children learn more about their Catholic faith. For example, you can find small chalices and patens, priestly vestments, a lectern, a Baptismal font, and a Paschal candle, to name a few. The idea behind the atrium is to give children a quiet space and special time in which they can foster their friendship with God and grow in knowledge of their faith – undistracted from the noise of the world.
