Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

Children (K-5)

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (Grades K–5) helps to lay a foundation for youth to live as disciples of Jesus in our world today. Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is a hands-on, Montessori-based approach to teaching the Catholic Faith. Youth are encouraged to develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church through times of prayer, work, and presentations that teach the fundamental truths of our Catholic faith. Sessions include lessons on the Gospel and the Liturgy, especially focusing on the parables of Jesus and the sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation, and the Eucharist.


We ask parents who have not previously attended a preparation class to attend a class before your child’s baptism. Please call the Parish Center, 419.537.6655, to begin this process. Classes are scheduled in March, June, September and December. You need to only attend one.
