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 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.



Our 2018 workshop is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, October 20, from 9:00 AM to 2:30 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.

Introductory Workshops are for adults who want to learn more about Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. Babes in arms are welcome, but there is no childcare available. Participants need to make other childcare arrangements.



To reserve a space, complete the form below. Introductory Workshops are sponsored by Cenacle Resources, a nonprofit organization that promotes the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd in the Diocese of Sacramento, so there is no cost to attend.


Parents, parish staff and others say they didn't understand CGS until they saw it in person. To schedule a visit, click here to contact us.
