What is Catechisis of the Good Shepherd all about? Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) provides an environment for our young children to encounter the beauty of God in a learning space prepared just for them. Each session is approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes and includes hands-on lessons on the Mass, scripture, and sacraments of the Catholic church. Each week, children will be provided with an environment in which to discover God through hands-on work, prayer and song. Each lesson is connected to a specific moment in scripture or Mass and is meant to bring them closer to the Good Shepherd.
When are classes held and how do I sign up? Faith Formation classes are held from September through mid-May. Students must be 3 years old by September 15 of the fall in order to enroll for the school year. Registration is held each spring/summer. When you log in to Realm to sign up, you will see the available choices for days and times. Read our notes for information on drop off, pick up, and more.
