Children's Faith Formation Program

the catechisis of the good shepherd

The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd: Used at the kindergarten level.  This is a program of faith formation that presents the most important realities of the catholic faith to the youngest members of the church.  This is achieved by: 1) a prepared environment (atrium) and 2) a trained catechist whose sources are scripture and liturgy. 

These presentations are chosen to convey the essentials of the faith in a manner appropriate to the child’s development.  The child is then invited to internalize and respond to the presentation by working with the materials themselves.  Photos of the Atrium.
