Catechesis of The Good Shepherd (Grades 1–5)
Good Shepherd is a sensorially rich experience for children from the ages of 3 –12 years. It gives them the opportunity to grow in the love and knowledge of God. Rooted in the Bible, the liturgy of the Church, and the educational principles of Maria Montessori, the children gather in a dedicated room, (the Atrium), which contains simple, yet beautiful materials which they use to help them absorb the most essential proclamations of the Catholic faith.
We believe that God and the child have a unique relationship with each other, and that the growth of this relationship should be assisted by the adult, but is directed by the Spirit of God within the child. Children need their own place to foster the growth of that relationship.
