Hosting CGS Formation

Should you have already started Catechesis of the Good Shepherd in your parish or school with an atrium environment and perhaps you have one or two trained catechists as well and now you would like to train more catechists. You may be ready to host a course in Catechesis of the Good Shepherd.

What you need to host a course:

Step 1: What kind of space is needed for such a course?

  • An adult meeting room
  • An atrium: it is very beneficial to help participants capture the vision of this approach to have an atrium – the sacred prepared environment for the children with most if not all the materials needed for the presentations.

Step 2: Contact our Office of Formation

Please contact our Director of Formation, Karen Maxwell

She will provide additional information about what is needed for a course and can provide recommendations for formation leaders.

You can also download a packet of information that can help you in preparing for a course
