The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is a faith formation experience for children ages 3 - 12 years old.  It is bases upon the belief that young children can and do experience God. The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd's work is done in an "Atrium", an environment created to nurture children's spirituality.  this is done by proclaiming the Gospel through the parable method, prayer, singing, silence, and exploring liturgical events.  Hands-on materials are used to help children and adults reflect together upon the great mysteries of the Christian faith.
