Faith Formation for Children

What if Every Child Could Have Time and Space
Specially Set Aside
for an Encounter with Christ?
The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is a time-tested approach for faith formation. It feeds the deepest needs of children, allowing each one to get to know God personally.
In a retreat-like atmosphere, through the use of special materials designed just for 3–12-year-olds, children hear the Word proclaimed and grow in their relationship with God.
The most essential treasures of the Christian faith, from scripture and liturgy, touch the heart of each child and lead to deep contemplation, prayer, and joy.
This Ministry Provides
An opportunity for children to fall in love with Jesus, the Good Shepherd, in a prepared space called an atrium.
Guided presentations to aid meditation on Bible scripture and the mysteries of the Christian faith, facilitated by formed adults (catechists).
An opportunity for each child's unique spiritual needs and capacities to be respected and nurtured.
There are Three Levels of CGS
