Level 1 Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Training at the Cathedral
What is Catechesis of the Good Shepherd?
Sofia Cavalletti, the founder of Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, said that the goal of catechesis is for the child to fall in love with the Good Shepherd. Children grow closer to God as they hear His word and reflect on it, using age-appropriate multi-sensory materials. A child who completes CGS, which is appropriate for children ages 3-12, will have a deep knowledge of Scripture and liturgy and will be prepared to participate in the worshipping community of their parish.
$300 per church for up to four people, which includes program and dinner for all five session dates.

Victoria Schwartz is trained in Early Childhood Education, Elementary Education, and as a catechist for all 3 age levels of Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. Victoria is a founding board member of the Atlanta Area CGS Regional Group – offering support and ongoing formation for catechists – and speaks at regional and national conferences on CGS.
“When I discovered Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, I knew that I had found a method that took seriously the child’s desire to know God. The method respects the child’s developmental growth and guides children from study into worship and prayer in age-appropriate ways. I joyfully began training to be a CGS catechist and have continued to learn and grow as I have taught CGS for the last 23 years.” – Victoria
