Where each child is encouraged to grow intellectually, physically, socially, aesthetically and above all, spiritually.
Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is a a Montessori -based faith formation founded on two pillars: Sacred Scripture and Holy liturgy. Through the use of Scripture and materials, which we call “work,” children are invited to enter into a deeper relationship with God.
A dedicated prepared space for children called Atrium along with extensively trained catechists.The atrium is a special place of work and prayer, filled with kids-sized furniture and hands on models of people, places, and items found in scripture and liturgy. These manipulatives are introduced to the children throughout the year. Each week , the children choose “work” to continue their meditation about particular Scripture texts or signs from the liturgy.Working with these materials , allows the child to enter more deeply into meditation , nurturing their relationship with the Good Shepherd.
