“So we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.”  Romans 12:5

Your membership in The United States Association of Catechesis of the Good Shepherd connects you with catechists and supporters from across the United States and even around the world, who share a commitment to the Christian formation of children. Your membership support not only gives you access to wonderful resources in Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, but also helps our association spread the word about how a relationship with the Good Shepherd can change the lives of adults and nourish the spiritual growth of children.

In this time of uncertainty, we take our mission very seriously, we continue to support catechists, parents, and others in the Church and beyond, as they grow in their understanding of the religious potential of children. We stand by our purpose to assist the involvement of children and adults in a common religious experience in which the religious values of childhood, primarily those values of contemplation and enjoyment of God, are predominant.  To do so we need your support. Your membership will help us weather these future weeks of financial down turn during the CONVID-19 pandemic.  We humbly ask for your continued help and support in this effort and we hold you all in our prayers.
