During this time after the Great Sunday of the Easter Season which marks our year as Sunday marks each week, may we continue to unpack the incomprehensible gift of His Risen Life and Light.
The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is a Montessori-based method of religious formation for children ages three through twelve. It seeks to create and facilitate a sacred, “hands-on” space for children called an Atrium, in which both the children and their catechists can hear, ponder, and celebrate the most essential mysteries of the Catholic faith as revealed in the Scriptures and the Liturgy. Originally developed in Rome by Sofia Cavalletti and Gianna Gobbi fifty years ago, the Catechesis continues to spread world-wide.
The children look forward to their weekly Atrium time where they spend an hour and a half to two hours working, listening, praying, and enjoying time with each other and with the Good Shepherd.
