The Good Shepherd and the Child Podcast – Season 3

CGSUSA Podcast Welcomes You!

“Let the children come to me, and do not prevent them; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” – Matthew 19:14 NAB

How can a young child deeply encounter the love of God and respond to it? What does this look like? How can we as adults foster and facilitate children’s authentic and loving awareness of God? What are the needs and capacities for a healthy religious life that children show us for such relationship?

The method of Christian Faith Formation called The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd has been exploring these questions for over 65 years guided by the Bible, Liturgy, Montessori principles, and the careful observation of what resonates most deeply with children.

Our host is Kerri Mecke-Lozano. Kerri has been involved with Catechesis of the Good Shepherd since 2010. She is certified in Level I, II, and III, and is in the process of becoming a certified formation leader by CGSUSA. She has worked in atria in both the United States and in Haiti. Kerri has a sociology degree from the University of Texas at San Antonio and has completed the CGS Heritage course from Aquinas Institute of Theology, St Louis, MO. She currently resides in the Hill Country of Texas with her husband, PJ, and their six children.

Journey with us, every other Wednesday as we explore the spirituality of the child through The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd.
