Answer: At Saint Martin’s we use the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd model. Our catechists help the children explore the lessons in the atrium, drawing focus on items following the liturgical year. Children can work in groups and individually. They plan prayer services, read scripture stories, explore the prayers and structure of the Mass, explore the geography of the land of Israel, and ponder the Kingdom of God and the many gifts that God has given us.
