Catechesis of the Good Shepherd exists because of the time and talent of the volunteers who fall in love with the Good Shepherd and want children to know this love too!
Adults that enroll in CGS formation are amazed at the way their own faith life is nourished and strengthened. CGS catechists receive 90+ hours of training before leading a CGS class. These catechists find their own spiritual life is fed along with the spiritual lives of the children they serve.
Catechists and assistants are desired for all age levels. Parents who assist can see indirectly what their child experiences during an atrium session. Parents say it is a wonderful experience, and children love to have their parents with them in the atrium.
Time Commitment: 1 1/2 to 2 hours per week, depending on your availability. You can commit to come just once, or once a month or weekly, depending on your schedule.
Training: On-site or refer to national office web site (www.cgusa.org)
VIRTUS Training is required for working with children.
