Workshop - Introduction to Catechesis of the Good Shepherd


Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Introductory Workshops introduce prospective catechists and others to this profound approach to Christian formation for young children. We discuss how it fits with a young child's spirituality, and give several sample catechesis presentations. The Introductory Workshop primarily helps participants discern whether the Holy Spirit is calling them to make the commitment required to train and serve as CGS catechists. The Workshop is not a catechist training. Catechist formation begins in April. Click here to see the training announcement.



Saturday February 5, 2022, 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM (If you need to arrive late or leave early, please indicate on the Reservation form below.) Participants should bring a bag lunch. This event is contingent upon a sufficient number participants.
