Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (COGS) is an approach to religious formation designed to meet the developmental needs of the child ages 3 through 12 years old. It is rooted in sacred scripture and liturgy. Children gather in an "atrium," a room specially prepared for them, which contains beautiful materials that are used to ponder the mysteries of the faith. CGS classes offer children a hands-on approach to learning more about their faith while inviting them into a deeper relationship with God.
