School offering atrium for Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

Catholic Courier    |    04.01.2019


To the editor:

The February Catholic Courier contained an article about the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, an approach to religious formation that nurtures in young children a deep relationship with God. Mother Teresa’s Sisters of Charity use this method, and it is increasingly regarded as the best way to bring children close to Jesus Christ.

The article listed several parishes offering this catechesis after Michelle Kuhner brought Catechist Training to St. Bernard’s School of Theology and Ministry last summer. The only school in Monroe County with an Atrium for Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is St. John Bosco in East Rochester. St. John Bosco Schools and Chesterton Academy of Rochester operate independently of the Diocese of Rochester, though we gratefully maintain a cooperative relationship with Bishop of Rochester Salvatore Matano and Superintendent of Catholic Schools, Dr. Anthony Cook III.
