Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) (Ages 3-9)

The Catechisis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) is a child-centered, Montessori-based process of Christian formation that paves the way for a greater participation in the liturgy of the Church.  Each child is enabled to participate more fully, consciously and actively in the Mass and the other Sacraments, as well as in the larger parish community.
