RELIGIOUS EDUCATION FOR PRE-SCHOOL:
LEARN MORE ABOUT CATECHESIS OF THE GOOD SHEPHERD
Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) is a unique approach to catechesis for children, offered at Saint Bridget of Sweden Parish for children in PreK 3 & 4.
CGS was developed in Rome in 1954 and uses a rich Montessori approach to engage young children in age-appropriate, hands-on materials based on Sacred Scripture and Liturgy. The CGS curriculum is designed to nurture a child’s pre-existing relationship with God.
The children learn in a specially prepared environment called the Atrium, a sacred and special space where children engage in a process of reflection and interaction. This time spent in the Atrium allows for even the youngest child to build a deep, lifelong relationship with Christ and his Church. Materials are intentionally prepared for the children to cultivate that loving relationship and further curiosity about the divine.
