About the Role
The role of the CGS catechist is not to “fill” the child with information, but to prepare an environment that responds to the needs of the child and to share elements that help “call forth” a response from the child. Together the catechist and child listen, ask, and wonder together. Contact: Davette Himes at CGS@sharonchapel.org
Founded simply as “the Chapel at Sharon” in 1848, All Saints Sharon Chapel has a rich history including war, occupation, fire, collapse and, most importantly, the grace of God to continue to serve our community through it all. Today, All Saints Sharon Chapel is the cherished home of an open and affirming, racially and ethnically diverse congregation holding steadfast to our best traditions while seeking to explore the spirit and will of God together.
The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is centered on the deep bond between God and the child, a relationship that continually nurtures in the child the desire to draw near to God.
