CGS is a Montessori-based, developmentally-oriented faith formation ministry for children ages 3–12.  Nationally certified catechists lead weekly sessions in which the mystery of God meets the mystery of the child. We need assistants who are able to serve alongside a catechist to provide support. CGS Assistant Training will equip you to serve in this ministry on a full-time, part-time, or substitute basis.

The training consists of two sessions, as follows:

Session 1: Monday, September 9, 9:30–11:15am or Tuesday, September 10, 6–7:45pm (pick one)

Session 2: Monday, September 16, 9:30-11:15am or Tuesday, September 17, 6–7:45pm (pick one)

CGS Assistant Training will cover a variety of topics including:
Orientation to the Atrium as a place of prayer
History of the method
The role of the child/adult/environment
How to help with practical life
How to help with altar and scripture works
Grace and courtesy
How to model Atrium decorum
