The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd
is an approach to the religious formation of children, rooted in the Bible, the
liturgy of the church, and the educational principles of Maria Montessori.
Children gather in an "atrium", a room prepared for them, which contains
simple yet beautiful materials that they use. In an atrium the child can ponder
a biblical passage or a prayer from the liturgy by taking the material for that
text and working with it - placing wood figures of sheep in a sheepfold of the
Good Shepherd, setting sculpted apostles around a Last Supper table, or
preparing a small altar with the furnishings used for the Eucharist. Find out
