CATECHESIS OF THE GOOD SHEPHERD
What is Catechesis of the Good Shepherd?
Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is an interactive form of catechesis where children explore with hands-on materials to understand the Bible and the Mass. This religious experience fosters the growth of the relationship between God and the child in a place specially prepared for the religious life of children called the Atrium.

- Catechist Formation is a retreat in which you will come to know more about, understand, and love our Catholic faith.
