Event description
This introductory course explores the foundations of an internationally recognized approach to the religious education of children.

About this Event

The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd highlights essential aspects of the Christian message that nurture a child’s need to love and be loved and a child’s capacity to enjoy God’s presence in his or her life.

The Level 1 formation course offers an orientation to the theological concepts fundamental to this ministry with children. It introduces the foundational biblical and liturgical themes that we present to children, through a combination of conversation, reflection and presentation -- these delivered as we would share them with children. The course also offers opportunities to work with Montessori-style, catechetical materials that have been designed to nurture children’s prayer.

This 90-hour course is especially designed for those who are interested in or already involved in caring for the spiritual lives of children, in a home, parish or school setting. It is a prerequisite for further adult formation courses in the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Certificate Program (Levels II and III).

Sessions will be held on the last Saturday of the Month from 9am to 4pm

Part A Schedule: Sept 28th, Oct 26th, Nov 30th, Jan 25th, Feb 29th, March 28th, April 25th, May 30th
