Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Level 1 Training
June 8th - October 6th, 2018
We are pleased to offer Level 1 Formation Training with Catechesis of the Good Shepherd this summer.
The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is a method of spiritual formation that relies on the one Teacher, the Holy Spirit, to guide both children and adults to a deeper and more meaningful relationship with God. This Level I course will offer an opportunity to contemplate the essential truths of our Christian faith and prepare participants to facilitate a Level I atrium for three to six year old children.
The Level 1 course is the foundational course for anyone interested in offering Catechesis of the Good Shepherd to children ages 3 - 6, 6 - 9, or 9 - 12. The Level 1 Course presents the seminal themes that continue through all three levels but is training catechists for the 3-6 age group. The sessions will be a mixture of lectures, discussions, presentations, album page preparations, songs and prayer.
Registration and tuition are for the entire course which will take place over the course of 2018 and 2019. The dates for the 1st half of the course are June 8-10, July 20 - 22, August 3 & 4, October 5 & 6. The second half of the course will be June 7-9, July 19-21, August 2 & 3, October 4 & 5.
Formation Leader: Micki Hill is a passionate lay minister and advocate for children in the church. She serves on staff at the Cathedral of All Souls in Asheville, NC as Dean’s Assistant for Children’s Formation and Coordinator of Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS). Micki has completed extensive training in all three levels of Catechesis and regularly participates in CGS workshops across the country. As a certified formation leader, chair of the Episcopal Committee, and board member for the National Association of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGSUSA) she is privileged to work with vestry, clergy and education teams to create an environment that welcomes children and young families. In her past career, Micki worked as a landscape designer and finds that her love for growing things has informed her life in formation ministry.
