This is an index of submissions from catechists across Canada.  It is here to serve only as a reference tool.  Please contact each atrium for specific information. Each atrium functions independently and is not directed by CGSAC. The index is ever-evolving as catechists make contact and post the beautiful sacred spaces in which they are pleased to serve.
