The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is an approach to the religious formation of children. It is 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 harmony with the universal church, the life in the atrium follows the liturgical year. Material is placed at the disposal of the children. The children’s personal work with the material aids their meditation on and absorption of the theme presented.
