With great enthusiasm, we welcome our children to a new year of Catechesis of the Good Shepherd in our St. Michael atrium (Level I) and St. John atrium (Level 2). Our schedule will be:
If you are not acquainted with this beautiful way of passing on our Catholic faith, you will want to stop by and visit the atrium. This is the special classroom with hands on materials that are based on Scripture, Liturgy, and the Traditions of the Church. You will readily recognize Sacramental symbols, Bible stories and the Articles of the Mass. For more information you may want to look at the website for the National Association of CGS: www.cgsusa.
Each week the children are invited into this sacred space to be nurtured in their relationship with God by listening to presentations and peacefully working with the materials.
As Catechists, our mission is to invite the child to fall in love with God and to enjoy God’s love by knowing Jesus, the Good Shepherd who calls us each by name.
We look forward to sharing this year with your child in the atrium! In the meantime, if you have any questions about Catechesis of the Good Shepherd or our atria, please feel free to contact the CGS catechists: For St. Michael, Level 1: Mrs. Leona Laverty, Mrs. Mary Boudrie, Sr. Nancy Ayotte, IHM.

In Christ’s love,
