Volunteers Needed For Our Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Program

Our Junior Kindergarten, Kindergarten, and Grade One children make weekly visits to the new atrium in Keller Hall. It is a special classroom reserved for the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Program. 

With carefully crafted, hands-on materials, the children explore elements of the liturgy, key Bible stories and a variety of Practical Life (fine motor) tasks.  The children are keen, but as they are expanding their work with new parables and materials, they need helpers to read the scripture excerpts to them. 

If you have time to spend with us on a Wednesday morning or afternoon, or a Thursday morning, we would very much appreciate your help. Volunteers are needed and no previous experience is required. We can show you the texts and the materials.

Ready to help? Please email Ms. Morrison.
