Marty joins us on the podcast again today to dive into Chapter 3 of Ways to Nurture the Relationship with God as a way for us to enter the Paschal Mystery during Holy Week and the Easter season.  We explore the connections between the Passover Meal, Last Supper, the Paschal Mystery, and the Eucharist.

She conducts adult formations at Levels I, II and III throughout the United States.

This week we are lifting up our Benefactor Member- Mustard Seed Training is a small group of home-based Christian artisans in Northeast Ohio. We prayed for you while making these materials for children and families.

Mustard Seed Training has been approved by The United States Association of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd to partner as a vendor member.

All CGS materials are supplied unfinished allowing the catechist to finish them in accordance with the CGS Method. In addition, our artisans commit to the following:

  • Use furniture-grade birch plywood
  • Use 3/8″ wood with joints instead of 1/4″ for sturdier dioramas
  • Keep popular materials in stock for faster shipping (for example our 2D & 3D figures)
  • Ship unassembled when possible to save you on postage
  • Produce made-to-order items within 6 weeks when not in stock
  • Choose eco-friendly shipping and printing supplies

We hope the materials available here will assist you in completing your CGS atrium! It is an honor to serve your ministry.

Feel free to contact Meagen Farrell at learn@mustseed.org or 216.973.4977 for:

  • Custom requests
  • Specific deadlines
  • Bulk items for retreats or materials making workshops
