Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

"The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd was born from the joy of the children in their encounter with God and lives in being nourished by this joy. It has also been observed that children of the same developmental stage [...] respond to certain elements of the Christian message in the same way." - From Catechesis of the Good Shepherd USA.

Our Catechesis of the Good Shepherd program is offered for ages 3-5. To accommodate the differing needs and availability of our families, this year we are offering two different sessions each week. Level I classes (3-6 years old, preschool and kindergarten) will be offered once a week on Sundays or Tuesdays from 9:15am to10:45am in August through May.

Online registration is now open for the 2023-2024 school year! Registration fee is $100.

Please do not wait to register because of financial hardship. We will never refuse a family access to parish programs due to inability to pay. Please contact our pastor, Father Aidan McDermott, at fraidan@stanselmstl.org or 314.878.2120 ext. 12.
All communication will be kept confidential.
