The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) is a Montessori-based approach to the religious formation of children, rooted in Sacred Scripture, liturgy, and respect for the child's rich relationship with God. Central to CGS is the atrium, a room containing beautiful materials that focus the child's attention on key scripture passages or liturgical moments.
After an introduction by the catechist, the children are invited to work with a material on their own to continue their meditation. Because children learn by using their hands, working with materials allows them to enter more deeply into meditation, nurturing their relationship with God.

Our atrium is suited for children ages 3 to 6. Volunteers are needed as catechists, aides, and materials makers and managers. For information, please contact Brad Sizemore, the Director of Religious Ed (DRE) at 843-3043 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
