Catechesis of the Good Shepherd
DID YOU KNOW: Young children are particularly capable of receiving and enjoying the most essential elements of our faith! The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Program that is offered at Spirit of Life allows the child to do just that. The purpose of Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is to assist the child in coming to know and grow in relationship with the Good Shepherd, while respecting the child’s dignity and developmental sensitivities for the face of God that help the child to answer the silent plea within every child, "Help me to draw myself closer to God." Children gather in an area called the Atrium, which is prepared specifically as a place that fosters the child’s relationship with God. Spirit of Life will offer three sessions of Level One (for ages 3-6) Catechesis of the Good Shepherd this fall beginning in September, one on Sunday and two on Wednesday evening. All sessions will meet every week.
