Frequently Asked Questions

What color are the Bible charts?

The Books of the Bible Control Chart is yellow.  Although the Books of the Bible Mute Chart looks tan, it is actually white.  The charts will print on legal size paper.  They can be laminated and then taped together with 2-inch clear plastic tape.

The tags for the mute chart can also be yellow – making them easy to see as they are placed.  Simply make two copies of the Control Chart on yellow legal size cardstock.  Use one for the control.  Use the second to cut out the individual books for the tags.  After you have cut them all, including the labels for the different sections – find a box or container to use to store them.

Welcome to CGSUSA

We believe God and the child have a unique relationship with one another. Children need their own place to foster the growth of that relationship. The growth of this relationship is assisted by the adult, but is directed by the Spirit of God within the child.

What is the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd? The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd was born from the joy of the children’s encounter with God. It has been observed that children of the same developmental stage, even those from widely varying cultural backgrounds, respond to elements of the Christian message in the same way.

In Catechesis of the Good Shepherd adults are given the opportunity to embrace a method of catechesis (or religious education) that will deepen one’s relationship with God. Catechist formation in Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is both instructive as well as experiential. It captivates both the head as well as the heart.

We read in the Gospel of Mark that Jesus sent his disciples out in pairs, two by two; the journey was not meant to be a solitary one. It is essential for us as catechists to support one another as we prepare materials, work in the atrium, and observe the child. We come together in unity, as members of CGSUSA, to share the joy of this work.

Support CGSUSA

Through their joy, their wonder and awe, their capacity for love and prayer, and their radical simplicity, children offer us adults a glimpse of what it means to fall in love with God. This has been the work of CGSUSA for over 30 years: to advocate for the child’s joy.
