Southern Nebraska Register

An information meeting will be held Feb. 9 for adults wishing to learn more about Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, a religious education program currently available to preschoolers and kindergarteners in parishes of the Diocese of Lincoln.

The information meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. at St. Teresa Parish, 735 S. 36th St., Lincoln, for those adults with children who could attend the program, or for those adults interested in training to be an educator.

Bishop James Conley called CGS “an incarnational, Christ-centered program that forms the whole person, body, mind and spirit, with a particular emphasis on the early imagination of a child.

“It is not enough to know about Jesus and his Church, we need to know Jesus himself in a personal and intimate way, through a real encounter,” the bishop said. “Through the beauty of the atrium, CGS creates an environment where a true encounter with Jesus can take place.”

Bishop Conley said CGS instructors are highly trained.

“I have seen first hand the fruits of this program,” he said. “I cannot recommend CGS highly enough.”

St. Teresa Parish in Lincoln plans to host formation opportunities, beginning in summer 2023, for Level 1 catechists.
