CGS Observation & Catechesis Formation

You may have heard that all of our early childhood students (Preschool – TK) attend Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) each week. Have you ever wondered what that is? All parents, grandparents, and parishioners are invited to join us to observe and discover how this program enriches our students’ lives. While observing, you will be provided a chair to sit and quietly watch as the children’s time in the atrium unfolds. You won’t be asked to participate or lead the children. CGS is a volunteer-run program. To continue the program we would love your help! We ask you to prayerfully consider becoming a catechist. Adult formation will be offered this summer and through the school year, you can sign up using the link below. If you have questions or are interested please contact Brooke Keller at

St. Stephen the Martyr Religious Education also hopes to add the CGS Faith Formation model for the parish’s preschool-age children. Volunteers are needed to make this happen. Learn more at:
