The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd
An approach 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 that they use.
Learn about the rich history of Catechesis of the Good Shepherd.
