Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Atrium Assistant Training will be offered on Saturday, Sept. 18, 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m., at St. Paul's Church (166 High Street) in Newburyport.
This day-long overview and in-depth introduction to Catechesis materials and programs will provide preparation to better assist in the program's atrium by:
•Knowing the names of the materials and how they are used;
•Exploring the unique spiritual needs and capacities of children ages 3-12;
•Experiencing the atrium as sacred space;
•Understanding how the atrium is different from Sunday school; and
•Becoming confident enough to offer a lesson, or substitute for a trained catechist.
Led by Kate Cabot and Carolyn Hughes.
Cost is $25 per person. Lunch is provided. For planning purposes, please register by contacting Jenn Mansfield at email@example.com.
