What is Catechesis of the Good Shepherd?

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) is a hands on, child-centered approach to spiritual formation. Built upon the Montessori methodology, CGS honors the spiritual life of the child and invites children and adults alike to listen for the voice of the Good Shepherd. 

Sessions are grouped by ages:

Level 1: K3-K5

Level 2: 1st-2nd Grade (or through First Communion)

Level 3: 3rd-5th Grade

You can learn more about this CGS and what it looks like at our Tri-Parish communities here.
