Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS)
Level I (3+ to 6) and Level II (6+ to 9)
CGS is a Montessori based religious education for children. The children spend 2 hours each session hearing presentations and working with materials based on the Bible and our Liturgy. If you are interested in your child participating this year,
Sept 23,Oct 7, 14, 28, Nov 4, 11 Dec 2, 9, Jan 20, 27, Feb 10, 17, Mar 3, 10, 17, Apr 7 and May 5
CGS does not meet every Sunday, but it is important that when we are scheduled to meet that your child is present unless they are sick, so please discern whether this is the right fit with your family schedule. This is not your typical religious education class that when they miss a session they can make it up at home, but the presentations they are given each session by the catechist allows them the ability to
work with more materials and become used to the style of the work in the atrium. Also, for each level there are three years of materials, that is why there is an age spread for each level.
Any 3+ year olds need to be independent in the bathroom (meaning they do not need any adult help), this is based on the Safe
Environment rules that have been directed from the Eparchy. If your child is not ready this year it will be completely fine if they begin at age 4, as some children may not move up to Level II until they are turning 7.
