Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) is a Catholic Montessori program that focuses on Sacred Scripture and the Liturgy. It takes place in a space called an “Atrium,” which is specially designed for young children, with hands-on, child-sized materials. This approach helps the children to learn, pray, and ponder the essential mysteries and truths of our faith.

St. Mark’s is now offering CGS to St. Mark’s parish families with children ages 3 ½ to 5 years old. There will be two sessions offered (one in the fall and one in the spring), and each session is comprised of 8 classes. The fall CGS session will center around the Liturgical seasons of Advent and Christmas; and the spring session will center around Lent and Easter.


The cost of the program is $45 per child per session. If you would like to register for the fall session of CGS, please fill out a registration form (below) by Friday, October 4th. 


Fall Session Dates:
Tuesdays from 9:50am-11:00am
November 5, November 12, November 19,
 December 3,  December 10, December 17,
January 7, and January 14



Kristin Wehrly will be the catechist for both sessions. If you have any questions, please contact her at
