Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) is a Montessori-based religion program rooted in the Bible and theLiturgy. Children gather weekly in a specially prepared room, called the Atrium. The room contains simple, but beautiful, age-appropriate materials. These “works” are presented to the children in a contemplative way. The children are then able to work with the materials as they ponder these ideas more deeply. The Atrium is not a classroom, but a place of prayer and community. Most importantly, it is a place for children to deepen their relationship with Jesus, Our Good Shepherd. Learn more at www.cgsusa.org.
CGS is integrated into the school curriculum for all MQP day school students through fourth grade. Children ages 3 years to 3rd grade who are not enrolled at MQP School may also register for the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Program. Cost is $220 for the year.
Age levels are: Level 1 (preschool–kindergarten), Level 2 (1st–3rd grade) and Level 3 (4th grade and up).
Level 1 and Level 3 will be Sunday mornings from 9:00-10:30am.
Level 2 will be Tuesday evenings from 6:45-8:00 pm (concurrent with PSR).
Level 2 CGS has a limited number of spots available Tuesday evenings for any first grade PSR students or for second and third grade PSR students who have previous Atrium experience. Sessions begin the middle of September. Space is limited, and registration is first come first serve.
