Catechesis of the Good Shepherd: Essential Realities
LiturgyTrainingPublications, 2004 - Religion - 113 pages
"Adventure," Celebration," "the way of Love" "Mysterious Growth," "Growth in Joy,"-these words, taken from some of the titles of the essays in this volume, convey the deep appreciation and commitment of those involved in the work of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. This celebration volume marks 50 years of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. Those familiar with this approach to the religious formation of children will delight in learning more about its very early years; those who are new to this work will be drawn into the spirit of respect and friendship the Catechesis inspires. Contributors include those who have worked in Rome with Sofia Cavalletti, the founder of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, for most of its 50 years as well as those who have been responsible for shepherding its growth in Mexico, Canada, and the United States.
