St. Michael Catholic Church and School

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

Beginning the Fall we have an exciting and faith-building opportunity for the youngest children in our parish.  Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (or CGS) is now offered at St. Michael Catholic Church.  CGS is a Montessori-based faith formation program for children.  CGS Level 1 (ages 3 1/2 - 6) and CGS Level 2 (ages 6-9) will become available to the families of St. Michael beginning in September of 2019.  CGS assists children in their religious experience as they learn the fundamentals of the Catholic Faith and deepen their love for Jesus Christ and his Church.  Children meet once a week during the school year in our dedicated CGS space (called an atrium).  In the CGS atrium sessions children are able to 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.  For more information about CGS please go to the National Association of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd website
