Good ShepherdáCatechesis of the Good Shepherd

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is a religious formation method for children based on the
educational philosophies of Maria Montessori.á It was developed in Rome, Italy in 1954 by
Sofia Cavaletti (a Hebrew Scripture scholar) and Gianna Gobbi (a formeráassistant to Maria Montessori).
Children experience Catechesis of the Good Shepherd in an atrium, a sacred space where work and
study spontaneously become contemplation and prayer.á In the atrium, children are exposed to hands-on
catechetical learning materials.á Catechesis of the Good Shepherd has spread worldwide and was adopted
in 2009 by the Missionaries of Charity, Mother Teresa's order.á

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd consists of three levels:
LeveláI (grades PK-K)
LeveláII (grades 1-3)
LeveláIII (grades 4-6)

We are pleased to announce that Epiphany Catholic Schooláhas adoptedáCatechesis of the Good
Shepherd beginning in the 2015-16 school year.á Construction for our new atria begins in Spring of 2015.
We will be implementing Level I initially, with Levels II and III to follow.á We look forward to helping our
school children fall in love with Jesus and fostering their relationships with God.á What a blessing!
