The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is an ap-proach to the religious formation of children. It is rooted in the Bible, the liturgy of the church, and the educational principles of Maria Montessori. Children gather in an “atrium,” a room prepared for them, which contains simple yet beautiful materials they use to help them absorb the most essen-tial proclamations of the Orthodox Christian faith.
We have three catechists from our parish who are currently enrolled in over 300+ hours of formation training. We will open our atrium in September 2013 and will begin with our preschoolers—ages 3-4 years olds. Interested? Want to learn more? Contact Kim Freij, Audrey King, or Abeer Samaan.
