Are you a home-school parent or community looking for religious enrichment?  Are you a Catholic family looking for additional religious education for your children?  Check out The Way of the Shepherd Community Atrium!

The WOS Community Atrium learning communities are hosted throughout the school year.  Children, ages 3-6, 6-9, and 9-12 will be guided in their work through the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd by certified and faithful guides and assistants. REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN FOR 2016-17.

Community AtriumThe Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

CGS is a Montessori-based Catholic faith formation program where children can grow in their relationships with God through a deep engagement in Scripture and Liturgy.

The Atrium

The Atrium is a specially prepared room where children can come to know Jesus, the Good Shepherd. The Atrium is prepared with materials children work with as a way of meditating upon the essentials of our faith found in Scripture and in liturgy.

More information can be found on the CGS Flyer 2016-17.


Community Atrium Calendar will be posted in late August.  Thank you!


There is a limit to how many children we are able to host in the Atrium.  Children will be accepted into their requested session until all spaces are filled.  Please be sure to register early so that your child will not have to miss out on such a wonderful opportunity to spend time with Jesus in the Community Atrium.
