Title of Presentation: THE CATECHESIS OF THE GOOD SHEPHERD – RECOGNIZING THE RELIGIOUS POTENTIAL OF THE CHILD 

The capacity for silence, for reverence and for contemplation needs to be nurtured within children for them to have a lifelong encounter with the One who loves them. For over 60 years the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) has studied and served this encounter with ages 3-12. CGS is rooted in the Bible, the Liturgy of the Church, and the educational principles of Maria Montessori. This workshop will provide an overview the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd as well as strategies for implementing and sustaining this work in a parish setting.  This workshop will also provide practical tools for approaching prayer with children in any setting.
