Catechist Formation

Current Course Offerings

The Good Shepherd calls his sheep by name. Is he calling you to listen to God with children?

SonFlower Region’s formation courses are listed below, with links for online registration. If you’d like to spread the word about our work, you can download the course flyer here.

Courses generally are offered in two parts, with certification requiring completion of both parts. Courses are guided by the standards set by the U.S. Association of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd and the International Council of CGS (Consiglio). They require a minimum of 90 hours of class time for Level I, 96 for Level II, and 110 for Level III. Schedules are set by the hosting parish/school and the formation team.

Formation is being scheduled, with new courses in all levels beginning this summer. Please watch for updated information and registration on this website.
