Are you seeking to contribute to the life of the children in our parish? Consider being trained as a catechist for our Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) program, a Montessori-based model that emphasizes encounter with Jesus. CGS is a non-traditional catechesis method, where children lead and our faith’s principles are shared through Scripture and multimodal activities. The program’s approach enable both catechist and catechumen to interact imaginatively with a shared goal of cultivating their relationship with Jesus.
We are looking for those who would like to be trained as catechists for Level I of the program (serving children ages 3-6). Initial training occurs over the course of a long weekend with follow-up trainings, totalling 90 hours. You will grow in your faith in this journey! If you’re a creative person that wants to share your gifts and talents with this parish’s children in a big way, please contact Andy Otto at firstname.lastname@example.org.
