The mystery of God meets the mystery of the Child in the Montessori-based children's faith formation called Catechesis of the Good Shepherd.
Why do we in Catechesis of the Good Shepherd care about the religious potential of children? Some might answer, “Because children are the future of our Church.” But they’re mistaken. Children ARE our Church.
They get the mystery of our faith. They love Jesus because they know Jesus loves them. They know it, maybe in their heads, but definitely in their hearts.
Through Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, we have made an impact on children and parishes in our region.

The Good Shepherd calls his sheep by name and leads them out. Is he calling you to listen to God with the children?
Catechists, or “religion teachers,” in the prepared environment called the atrium come from many walks of life: college students, young parents, empty-nesters, career persons, priests, teachers, and grandparents are only a few. What they all have in common is a love for children and a love of their faith as well as the belief that the Master Teacher is God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
