Traditional Classroom

Traditional classroom formation takes place twice a week on Mondays and Wednesdays.  Parents can pick a time that is best for their family.  Monday sessions meet from 6:15 to 7:30pm for grades 1-5 and Wednesday sessions meet from 4:30 to 5:45pm for grades K-5.

 

We use the “Be My Disciples” series published by RCL Benziger.

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) is a hands-on approach to religious education based on the Montessori Method.  Recognizing that children have a unique and beautiful relationship with God, the aim of this method is to foster this relationship while helping children grow in an understanding of scripture and liturgy, thus allowing them to participate more fully in the center of the Church’s life – the Mass.

 

CGS is split into three levels: Level I (3-6 year olds); Level II (6-9 year olds); Level III (9-12 year olds).  All three levels will be available this Fall at St. Cecilia’s.  Class times:
