100 Days of Joy

100 Days of Joy


We are grateful to all those who shared memories of Gianna, along with those who have shared with us how her writing, her art and her work has impacted our role as catechists.  In 2019 we honor Gianna Gobbi on the occasion of her centenary.  Gianna’s  was born in  on December 15, 1919. 

Gianna began her studies as a Montessorian when she was twenty years old. Her work with the child brought her to the door of Sofia Cavalletti. Together they began to work with children in 1954 in the area of children’s religious formation.

Her experiences and insights are documented through her book Listening to God With Children, as well as in numerous articles which may be found in the annual Journal of the United States Association of Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. Numerous other writings of Gianna are available in Italian and Spanish.

December 15, 2019 is the centenary of Gianna Gobbi’s birth and to remember and celebrate her joy, the United States Association of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is inviting all involved in the work with children to share their stories of joy for 100 days.
