Development of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

Development of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

A photographic record of the materials for the three age groups (3-6, 6-9, and 9-12) as well as historical photographs, and drawings by the children in Sofia Cavalletti’s atrium, Centro di Catechesi Buon Pastore,  in Rome. The commentary is by Cavalletti, who with Montessorian Gianna Gobbi, developed this approach to the religious formation of children.

Cavalletti  highlights the origin and development of the materials, including how the children’s responses guided the selection of the foundational themes of the Christian message they presented to the children. At each level, the selected themes from Scripture and Liturgy, and materials that elucidate these themes, nurture the child’s religious potential for a relationship with God.
