Sunday School uses Catechesis of the Good Shepherd
Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is a Montessori approach to the Christian Formation of children with the primary aim of guiding the child into a personal relationship with Christ. Children gather in the Atrium , a sacred space set apart for prayer and meditation. Through presentation of hands-on materials by the Catechist, children learn about their Faith as Anglicans, the Covenant, Biblical History, the Life of Jesus, Parables of the Kingdom of God, the Liturgy, the Liturgical Year, the Sacraments, and the Scriptures. This approach is progressive with materials presented over the course of several years.
