Catechesis of the Good Shepherd open house July 29


St. Andrew the Apostle Parish, Gibbsboro, will host an open house July 29, 7-8 p.m., on Catechesis of the Good Shepherd.
Originating in 1954, Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is based on Montessori principles of education, rooted in Scripture and the liturgy, and meant to foster a personal relationship with God.
The catechesis takes place in an atrium, a place specifically prepared by the parish and recalling the place in the early church where the first Christians received their formation in the faith. It is designed as a place of prayer and hands-on work that is chosen by each child.
The open house will be held in the parish center. Catechists, directors of religious education and clergy are invited. For information or to register, contact Kate Vukicevich, 856-783-0550,
