Coming to know God better through our work
One unique characteristic of Catechesis of the Good Shepherd at our Academy is the Atrium.
The Atrium is a peaceful, sacred and prayerful space for the children to come visit each week, like a spiritual retreat.
In the Atrium, the work of the child is time spent with God, growing in his or her personal relationship with our Good Shepherd. Order, simplicity, beauty in environment, cultivation of silence, proclamation of the Word, communal prayer and celebrations all nurture a spirit of prayer in the Atrium.
