Refresh, Restore, Renew

“Let the children come to me; do not prevent them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” 

Mark 10:14

Returning to the Atrium, Restoring Community

Let us be advocates for the child’s religious life and the vital needs and capacities they have for a relationship with God as we help our communities discern what our options are for the new school year in the fall.  As parishes and schools around the nation look to re-opening, many ask how we can preserve the basic principles of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd while at the same time following the guidelines for infection prevention. These two things may seem to be incompatible in many ways yet we believe that there are ways of opening the atria safely.

We have prepared the following document and reopening template to aid the local atria communities, parishes, and schools in discerning how best to do so.
