Catholic Identity

WINNER: St. Joseph’s Catholic School in West St. Paul, Minnesota, has incorporated Catechesis of the Good Shepherd into the religion curriculum. This program supports a classroom teacher’s understanding and commitment to both imparting knowledge and assuring the retention of that knowledge with the need for self-guided time to come to know and love the person of Jesus as the Good Shepherd. Catechesis of the Good Shepherd allows students to have a deep and profound encounter with the loving person of Jesus Christ and the mystery of the Mass and sacraments, and come to appreciate the seriousness and richness of the Catholic intellectual life. The students are evangelized and catechized simultaneously.
