Welcome back, CGS!

Thank you for making our return Sunday to All Saints Sharon Chapel so wonderful and joyous.

Our relaunch of in-person Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Montessori Atrium was a success, and we are looking forward to welcoming back more of you in the coming weeks. A big thank you to everyone who worked tirelessly to create such a beautifully-prepared space in the weeks leading up to our first day back.

With a newly formed group of volunteers we will embrace with joy CGS this Advent Season and its Christ centered nurture of children, with its holistic and developmentally appropriate approach.

  • Level I PreK-K (3-6 Years)

  • Level II Grades 1-3 (6-9 Years)

  • Level III-IV Grades 4-6, 6-8 (9-12,12-13 Years)

We will offer initially for our children PreK-K up to grades 6-8 entering middle school in preparation for confirmation. We hope to form a Parent Toddler Group 18 to 36 Months in Spring 2023.

COVID-19 & Safeguarding Children

In preparation for welcoming the children, we will have a safe environment observing best practices and training for adult volunteers along with layered COVID-19 prevention measures.

All adults in contact with children will have completed Safeguarding God’s Children training through the Diocese. Mask wearing while not required is welcome and encouraged as we monitor community numbers this winter for COVID, flu and RSV, particularly among young children. We are installing air purifiers and have contracted a company for regular weekly cleaning of the environment, hand sanitizing stations and masks will be available for children and adults in the atrium for those who wish.

We invite children, families and those with a heart for the child seeking to be formed and trained as atrium guides to our new community of CGS. Hybrid CGS will be available soon as well. Contact Davette Himes for more information.

Take home Advent wreath kits will be available at coffee hour.

In Advent Peace and Thanksgiving,

Davette Himes
