(H) Catechesis of the Good Shepherd
Have you ever wondered about the spiritual lives of very young children? Are you curious about the new Good Shepherd Atrium program that’s recently started at several Montreal parishes?
This workshop will present the history and background of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, a Montessori-based approach to children’s spiritual formation that is over 60 years old. You’ll hear about theological concepts and hands-on activities that the children encounter, we’ll describe the special place called the atrium, which is like a retreat center for the children, and provide guidance on how to establish this program at your own parish.
Interested volunteers, teachers and catechists are all welcome.
