Our Lady of the Rosary Parish Community Detroit

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) is a Montessori based religious education program that is rooted in the Bible and the teachings of the Church. The space where children experience this program is called an atrium. The CGS approach addresses the "whole child," giving children the opportunity to use multiple senses to experience God.

Our Lady of the Rosary has catechists that have been trained in Level 1 of CGS for ages 3-6 and is currently involved in an ongoing effort to complete a Level 1 atrium.

In addition to the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, Our Lady of the Rosary offers preparation for First Communion, Reconciliation and Confirmation.

Sophia and Jessica were excited and “all dressed up!”

After weeks of practice, Jessica got to read at Mass!

Sophia was very serious about reading the Responsorial Psalm.

Sebastian had the job of leading the entire congregation in the Prayers of the Faithful!

Fr. Bob Molloy, Capuchin, presided at Mass and gave very special attention to our three first communicants.

After months of instruction, the moment has arrived!

Trina has worked hard with our three First Communicants to prepare them and to be sure they understand what they are experiencing!
