 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, where the adult catechist serves as a guide for them. The Atrium is a specially prepared environment for children to listen to the proclamation of the Good News and meditate on it through hand-crafted materials that correspond to their age and needs.

These materials, called “works,” focus on key parables such as the Good Shepherd (John 10:3-5, 10b-11, 14-16) and the True Vine (John 15:1-11), as well as the Mass, sacraments, prayer, and much more. The experience is profound for the children and for the adults witnessing the Holy Spirit’s work in the Atrium. Learn more about Catechesis of the Good Shepherd at https://www.cgsusa.org/.
