IMTH-780: Introduction to CGS – a Liturgical and Kerygmatic Catechesis

2 credits

The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) is a faith formation experience for children ages three to twelve years old. It is based on the belief that young children can and do experience God. Founded on the principles of Maria Montessori and Sofia Cavalletti, the catechesis is rooted in scripture and liturgy. Central to the catechesis is the atrium, a special environment created to nurture the child’s spirituality with beautiful materials that focus the child’s attention on key scripture passages or liturgical moments.
