Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is for children ages 3 to 5. It is based on the educational principles of Maria Montessori and is a method developed by Hebrew scripture scholar, Dr. Sophia Cavalletti, and early childhood educator, Gianna Gobbi.
This innovative approach, grounded in Scriptures and the liturgy, begins with the realization that young children not only develop a personal, loving relationship with God but actually have a hunger for God. Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is offered on Sunday mornings in the St. Irenaeus school building from 9:30 - 10:30. To register, please call our Faith Formation Office at 412-794-4008.
