Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

We are excited that Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is continuing to grow here at Saint Ambrose!  Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is a Montessori-based method of sharing the beauty and knowledge of our Catholic faith, in which children encounter the love of the Good Shepherd through presentations on Scripture and liturgy, hands-on learning, and their personal work. This time with the Good Shepherd takes place in the atrium, a special place of prayer, prepared and set for the children. The atrium is full of many works including the model altar, where the children hear the names of the holy items used at Mass and observe how to set the altar; the Nativity story, in which the children listen to a Gospel passage of the Lord’s birth and then can work with it themselves; a map of the Land of Israel, the special place God chose for his only Son; and so much more!

We currently offer Level I of Catechesis for children ages 3 – 6. Children of this age enrolled in Early Childhood enjoy time in the atrium every week. During the 2021-2022 school year, we offered our first-ever parish session of Catechesis of the Good Shepherd on Monday afternoons. We look forward to adding another parish session next fall.
