    Children's Formation | Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

    This experiential, sensorial and quiet Christian teaching method is designed to awaken in each child the sense of wonder, awe and natural spirituality inherent in all human beings, young and old.  The process of this awakening is deeply rooted in Christ, the Church, the Scriptures and the Eucharist (Holy Communion). The Catechesis, taught by trained volunteers and their helpers, will be most Sundays until May, from 9:30 AM until 10:50 AM.  Contact Anne with your questions or comments.
