The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is a Christian Ministry for children aged 3-12 years that is based on the Bible and Liturgy of the Church. It is inspired by the principles of Montessori education.
This Ministry provides:
an opportunity for children to fall in love with Jesus, the Good Shepherd, in a child-friendly space called an atrium – located in a home, church, or school.
guided activity to aid meditation on Bible scripture and the mysteries of the Christian faith once a week - in small groups, facilitated by trained adults (catechists).
Each child's unique spiritual needs and abilities are respected and nurtured.
The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is recognized by mainline Christian churches as a ministry offering religious formation for children .
