Catechesis of the Good Shepherd and Faith Formation: We have special rooms with hands-on materials based on the life of Jesus from the Bible and articles of the Mass.  Children actually learn the “language of the Liturgy” so as to be able to participate more fully at the Mass.  In the ancient basilica there was a space between the street and the Church, a space used to prepare people to enter the full life of the Church.  This space was called the atrium.  Our parish’s atrium is a place where work becomes contemplation and prayer.  Have you even worked with your hands until you were satisfied?  How has being in touch with creation put you in touch with the Creator?  Contact Amanda, Terri, or Celine to see our 5 special rooms  “atria” for children.  Level I for ages 3-6, Level II for grades 1-3, Level III for grades 4-6.  Is your children registered for Faith Formation this fall?  Celine: st.fidelisCGS@gmail.com  or  Amanda: faithformation@saintfidelis.org
