Catechesis of Good Shepherd course setJanuary 3, 2020
ST. MEINRAD — Training in the Montessori-based method of Catholic formation for young children will be offered by Saint Meinrad Seminary and School of Theology.
Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Level I training includes three sessions. The first session will be held June 10 through 14 on the Saint Meinrad campus. The deadline for registration is Sunday, March 1.
The training is designed to create and facilitate a sacred, hands-on space for children called an atrium, where children and their catechists can hear, ponder and celebrate the essential mysteries of the Catholic faith as revealed in scripture and the liturgy.
This course will enrich the participant through fostering a catechist’s spirituality, grounded in theological and pedagogical formation, along with a study of Maria Montessori’s vision of the human person.
In addition to providing the theory and praxis of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, the course will prepare participants to develop and facilitate an atrium for 3- to 6-year-old children. After completing the course in January 2021, the participant will be certified as a Level I Catechist by the National Association of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd.
The second and third training sessions will be held July 16-19 and Jan. 7-10, 2021. For more information and to register, visit www.saintmeinrad.edu/continuing-formation/catechesis-of-the-good-shepherd/.
The program is being offered by the School’s Continuing Formation Program. For more details, contact Morgan Simon at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 812-357-6341.
