What is Catechesis of the Good Shepherd?
Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (or CGS) will begin at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church. CGS is a Montessori-based faith formation program for children and will be available to the families of St. Francis Xavier beginning in September of 2020. CGS helps children learn the fundamentals of the Catholic Faith and offers an opportunity for religious experience that assists them in deepening their love for Jesus Christ and his Church. Children will meet once per week during the school year in a specific space dedicated to CGS, this space is referred to as the atrium. In the CGS sessions children will enter into the story of the Scriptures and the life of the Church through hands-on learning as they prayerfully reflect on the voice of the Good Shepherd speaking to them in the quiet and prayerful atmosphere of the atrium.
Children ages 3 ½ to 6 yrs old by Sept 1, 2020 and who are toilet trained are welcome to join us for this amazing opportunity.
CGS will be offered on Wednesdays from 3:00 to 4:30pm at the Education Center.
- The Wednesday session goes from Sept 23, 2020 to May, 2021
