What is Catechesis of the Good Shepherd?
Beginning in 1954 in Rome, Italy, Sofia Cavaletti and Gianna Gobbi developed an approach to the faith formation of children using the educational philosophies of Maria Montessori. This approach appeals not only to the profound religious institution of younger and older children, but also evolved from the children themselves.
