Catechesis of the Good Shepherd – One of the most prominent aspects in the Living Bridges School is our pre-school religious program – The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, which is led by certified catechists.  This wonderful world-wide program began in Rome through the work of Maria Montessori.  Strong symbols and great teachers bring 3 to 5 year olds (Level I) into a close encounter with Jesus, The Good Shepherd.  An advanced catechesis (Level II) is also available for 6, 7 & 8 year olds.  This exciting program is in such demand that we’ve had to recruit new catechists and expand classes to accommodate the growing numbers.  At St. Mary of the Assumption School in Phoenixville, we were blessed with four fully equipped atrium rooms, two for each level of C.G.S., along with trained catechists in the parish anxious to serve with us. In September 2012, this program will be a major part of our new school at Sacred Heart in Royersford.
