About this Event

Workshop leader - Elizabeth Calanchini

Elizabeth Calanchini has been a Montessori directress, guide, and catechist for 26 years. She is AMI trained to work with children ages 0-12 years old. She is also a trained catechist in the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd and has assisted in offering CGS formation for several years. Elizabeth is affiliated with a Catholic Montessori school in Virginia that is developing toddler catechesis and was the breakout session leader on the Toddler Atrium at the 60th Anniversary Celebration of Catechesis of the Good Shepherd in 2014.

This workshop introduces parents, DREs, pastors, prospective catechists and others to this Montessori-based approach to Christian formation for young children. Participants will learn about Montessori principles of education and receive sample CGS presentations. There will be an opportunity for questions from participants.

This workshop is highly recommended for parents enrolling their children in Catechesis of the Good Shepherd for the year 2019 - 2020 (even those who have enrolled in the past) and anyone who wishes to serve as an assistant in the atrium. It is highly recommended for anyone discerning whether or not to make the commitment to train and serve as a catechist. This is not a catechist training. Please visit www.cgsusa.org to inquire about Catechists training or check with your DRE.
