CGS is an experiential religious education based on nurturing the child’s relationship with God. In the CGS space, a specially prepared environment called the “atrium,” children come to know Jesus through their hands-on work with specialized materials.
CGS Level 1 is for children aged 3 through Kindergarten and is our only faith formation option for this age group. There are two session of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Level I for the 2023-24 formation year. Sunday mornings from 10:30-12:00pm or Tuesdays from 4:00-5:30pm. Once a timeslot is filled, no more students will be accepted to that time.
