Catechesis of The Good Shepherd
Catechesis of The Good Shepherd views Faith Formation as a relationship between Jesus and the Child. The only teacher in the Atrium is Jesus. The adults facilitate this relationship and provide the materials and environment for the loving relationship to grow and develop. This differs from the traditional method of pouring information about Jesus into the mind of a child that may not reach the heart.
Catechesis of The Good Shepherd meets in the Atrium (located in the Religious Education area) of the Parish Hall.
