Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

**To register or get more information, please call or text Annamarie Adkins at 651-324-4870**

Saint Agnes Catholic Church is excited to announce that it is hosting its third year of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd program for the 2018-2019 school year.

The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is a Montessori-based Catholic faith formation program in which children can grow in their relationship with God through a deep engagement in Scripture and Liturgy.

CGS is based on the belief that God and the child are already in relationship. Our work as adults is to provide a place for the child and God to come together and grow – in an atrium!

Three sections of the Good Shepherd atrium will be offered, and are filling up fast: 8am-9:30am (to accommodate school families) and 10am-11:30am every Tuesday, and 10am-11:30am every Wednesday. The first class begins Sept. 11 and 12, and will run through May 7 and 8, with seasonal school breaks. Orientation for first-time students will be held the week before, on Sept. 4 and 5, during the allotted class times.

***ONLINE REGISTRATION for 2018 OPENS April 2 and CLOSES May 1. After that date, you will receive confirmation whether there is room in the atrium of your choice for your child. Please go to this link to register online:
