 What is Catechesis of the Good Shepherd?
Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is Montessori-based and is a method of helping children develop a close relationship with God and where the adult catechist serves as a guide for them. The Atriums are specially prepared environments where hand-crafted materials are created specifically for their age and use. There are “works” showing the colors of the liturgical year and chasubles as well as works relating to the parables and the infancy narratives. There is also a prayer table for the children to prepare and sit in meditative prayer. The experience is profound for the children and for the adults witnessing the Holy Spirit’s work in the Atrium.
