Catechist Volunteers Needed!

"Offering something to the giver of a gift is a spontaneous gesture when the child is very happy; in such an instance, offering is an expression of joy. . . The hands that are lifted up are a manifestation of the child's joy and not as yet of his moral commitment... offering flows spontaneously from a joyful heart."

- Sofia Cavalletti, Religious Potential of the Child, page 87-88.

Are you discerning a call to be a CGS catechist?   Would you like to assist in the atrium?  Demand for CGS sessions has increased along with the number of children in the atria. Now we need you to become our next trained catechists and co-catechists to listen to God with children. 

There are 2 course formats for CGS formation courses for adults:  the "concentrated 8-10 day course over two summers" model, and the"one day a month" or the weekend model.  Visit for more.

Catechist Testimonies 

"From this course I learned and experienced a deeper understanding of Church doctrine through the beautiful, peaceful presentations of materials in the atrium.  From the bottom of my heart, thank you for the gifts given to me these past eight days.  Truly a blessing!"

- Judy (course participant from Level I part 1 in August 2017, current Level I Sunday catechist)

"I learned things that I did not know as a cradle Catholic! Thank you [Marty O'Bryan] for being open to answering questions from all of us, even those of us who do not have the theology background that you have!  I loved your personal stories, it made the experience more real!"

-  Molly (course participant from Level I part 2 in August 2017)

"New insights:  Mystery is the eternally knowable, not an excuse for things that are hard to explain.  Children must fall in love with the Good  Shepherd.  It is good to know to do good for the sake of Good and proper moral formation" 

- Pablo (course participant from Level I part 1 in August 2017, current Level II Sunday assistant)

"Jesus is crowned with thorns.  We are crowned with fire." - 6 year old in Level I atrium (2019).
