Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) is a prayerful, peaceful method of presenting Scripture and the Truths of our Faith to young children in an atmosphere of tranquil joy. It has been used in parishes and schools across the world for more than 60 years. CGS takes place in a prepared space called an Atrium. This space has developmentally appropriate materials for students which will allow them to develop their relationship with Christ through Sacred Scripture and the Traditions of the Catholic Church.
