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 of the church. Children gather in an "atrium," a room specially prepared for them, which contains beautiful materials that they use to ponder the mysteries of the faith. Catechesis of the Good Shepherd classes offer children a hands-on approach to learning more about their faith while inviting them into deeper relationship with God.

Bring all your lovely creatures for a blessing and get one for yourself!

It is an excellent opportunity to learn about the Mass, to grow in faith and love of God & His Church, to learn to pray better, & to give back to your parish!
