Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Level 1 Training
July 20th - 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.
