Episode 1 – “Let’s begin!” with Mary Mirrione

Welcome to the Good Shepherd and the Child Podcast! Where we explore the spirituality of the Christian child using the method of The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd.

In this introductory episode Mary Mirrione, National Director of the United States Association of Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, answers the question: WHAT IS The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd?

Mary Mirrione began working with CGS in 1992. She and a team of catechists and parents built atria at St Anne’s in Gilbert, Arizona for their 1800 children. She has been a formation leader since 1997 serving as such at home and abroad. She also worked with the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal in Honduras and Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity throughout the United States and around the world. Mary served on the Board of the National Association and is a member of first cohort at Aquinas Institute to receive a Masters in Pastoral Ministry in the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. She serves as a faculty member of Kino Catechetical Institute in the Diocese of Phoenix. Since 2010, she serves as the National Director for the United States Association of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd.

We hope you will join us every other Wednesday starting January 8th, 2020 for a journey into the religious life of the child and how we as adults can foster and facilitate the children’s relationship with God.
