ina has been working in an atrium since she the age of three. She has had the gift of a time and place to enjoy and contemplate the love of the Good Shepherd.
Her joy in her relationship with him can be seen in the drawing she makes. The Good Shepherd ‘s smile reveals his delight, and he holds the lamb in his arms so lovingly that even his arm is colored red, the color of much love. The lamb in his arms rests in blissful security while the lamb at his feet wraps herself around him and looks up with great tenderness. Gina names the Shepherd and the sheep with words, yet her drawing reveals more than her words: it is a glimpse into that sacred place where the mystery of the child meets the mystery of God.
Through the work of this Association, children all around the world discover and celebrate their relationship with God in the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. Our Association helps children to rest in his arms and adults to remain in him. CGSUSA’s growth has been abundant since Gina entered the atrium and so has the list of projects required to support our precious work. In order to meet the current needs of the children and catechists in CGS atria nationwide, we must raise $80,000 before Decem-ber 31 to bridge the gap between our operating expenses and revenue. We seek your help.
Please help us with a gift to sustain our work and ensure that children like Gina can continue to enjoy a sacred place where they can contemplate and enjoy the love of our Good Shepherd.
In the Love of our Good Shepherd,
