Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS)

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is a Montessori-based faith formation program founded on two pillars: Sacred Scripture and Holy Liturgy. Through the use of Scripture and materials, which we call “work,” children are invited to enter into a deeper relationship with God. Over 200 young people visit our three atria each week. During our time together, we focus on encouraging the formation of a personal prayer life, helping our students to participate fully in the liturgical and sacramental life of the Church, and working to develop a deeper understanding of our Catholic identity and Tradition.

CGS has three levels of atria, each serving specific grade levels:

Level I: Pre-kindergarten and kindergarten
Level II: Grades 1-3
Level III: Grades 4-5

CGS classes are offered during the school year at several various times on Sundays and also Thursday evenings.
