A formation experience for adults working with the 9-12 year-old child in a parish or school setting.


 
In Level 3, the covenant is considered with respect to God's revelation and relationship with us through time: the ‘History of the Plan of God’. This theme is explored through: typological studies of Hebrew Scripture; the History of the Jewish People; a deeper look at the sacraments (including Confirmation and the Sacrament of the Sick); and the miracles of Jesus. Moral formation continues through an expansion of the Level 2 work on the maxims and includes an introduction to biblical virtues. Participants discuss organizing “going out” events with the Level 3 children.
 
The course is presented in the Roman Catholic tradition but includes awareness of material adaptations to the Anglican, Lutheran and Orthodox traditions.

The Level 3 course builds on the foundation laid by the Level 1 & 2 courses. This 120+ hour course will continue to ground the participant in the theory and themes of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd while also preparing the adult to develop and facilitate an atrium community for 9-12 year old children.
