WHAT IS CATECHESIS?
Catechesis is an ancient word meaning “Echoing God’s Word”. The person who does this is known as a catechist. Perhaps you have been praying with your child and talking about God’s presence and love in your lives. Wonderful! We recognize that you, as a parent, are the first educator and catechist of your child.
CATECHESIS OF THE GOOD SHEPHERD is a program of faith formation for children ages 3 through 12 years, where they can experience and form a meaningful relationship with God.
Each week, the children gather in the Atrium, a room prepared for them that is suited to their needs and capacities. Here the children and the catechists can hear, ponder, and celebrate the most essential mysteries of our Catholic faith as revealed in the Scriptures and the Liturgy.
For additional information about the program, please call Shari Avianantos at the Parish Office (480) 874-3712.
We are always in need of more volunteers. If you love children and love sharing your Catholic faith, please contact Shari to let us know how you can help.
