Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

This is also utilized for your child’s religious formation. In the words of a child, this curriculum helps the child “come close to God all by myself.”

This program takes place in a room specifically designed to induce the quiet meditative persona required for their “hearts to hear” His word. We call this room our Atrium. The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is a simple and effective Christian message presented to our children. Great truths are placed before the children in ways they can touch, feel, absorb, and understand. The Atrium is a place of prayer, in which work and study spontaneously become meditation, contemplation, and prayer.

The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is built on the foundation of the Bible and Liturgy. All of the presentations are based on Scripture. The mysteries of God found within Scripture are embraced, not explained. The Bible is not “taught” but encountered and explored together by the Catechist and the child. This curriculum follows the Liturgical Cycle of the church year, focusing on the great feasts of Christmas, Easter, and Pentecost.
