Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS)
The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd has been described as a meeting place of two mysteries: the mystery of God, and the mystery of the children.
This program is highly child-centered, and allows children to enter into relationship with God in their own ways, and in their own time. We meet in the atrium, a quiet, focused place-more like a children’s chapel than a classroom. Everything in the atrium is designed with simplicity, beauty, and dignity and all items are child-sized.
Each Sunday, a different presentation is offered in the atrium, for example: The Presentation of the Geography and Land of Israel, where the children locate the very place where Jesus was born, there is The Presentation of Liturgical Calendar and Colors, that shows the way our church year is structured.
The heart of the catechesis holds that children have a deep capacity to receive and experience the most essential elements of our faith and where God is encountered through Word and action.
There are two ways for your children to participate:
9 - 9:30 am See your weekly newsletter for the Zoom link.
9:45-The Peace, at which time we bring your children back to the Sanctuary for Communion.
All children are welcome to visit our atrium, and anyone can drop in any time they are visiting, to experience the Good Shepherd, the one who calls each of us by name.
