The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is a Montessori-based approach to Christian formation through which children as young as 3 form deep, lifelong relationships with Christ. This workshop will introduce prospective catechists and others to this unique and profoundly effective approach to Christian formation for young children. We will discuss how it fits with a child's spirituality, and give several sample catechesis presentations. The workshop will help participants discern whether they are called to make the commitment required to train and serve as CGS catechists. Full catechist formation training begins in April, 2018. The workshop is for adults. Babes in arms are welcome, but there is no childcare available. Participants will need to make other childcare arrangements.
