The Level 2 course lays the foundation of the theory and practices of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd for the 6-9 year old child.
This 97+ hour course prepares the adult to develop and facilitate an atrium for this age group.
"Covenant" is the focus of Level 2. We consider God's self-revelation in relationship with us. This theme of Salvation History is explored through the use of timelines of God’s saving presence. We also take a deeper look at the sacraments, and work on the maxims and moral parables of Jesus. Using the parables of the True Vine and the Good Shepherd, we contemplate the question, “How am I called to live in covenant relationship?” The course is presented in the Roman Catholic tradition but includes awareness of material adaptations to the Anglican, Lutheran and Orthodox traditions.
