The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is a religious experience involving children and adults in which the religious values of childhood, primarily those values of contemplation and enjoyment of God, are predominant. This experience is shared in a place particularly prepared for the religious life of children called the Atrium.
Jennifer Bell is an international Catechist Leader and has seen, shared, and taught the wonder of CGS for 24 years.
Developed in Rome over 50 years ago, the CGS method brings children of all ages closer to God, and teaches adults how to foster the connection.
As a spiritual director Jennifer Bell also brings a heightened religious presence.
" For over a decade, I have spent weekly time with children of all ages in an atrium. They have shown me what it is like between the Good Shepherd and His sheep – especially for the youngest.”
In a Spiritual Direction relationship you have a companion on your life journey. A Spiritual Director sits with you and God or Spirit, listening deeply, witnessing, tracking the Holy, waiting, prioritizing, and sometimes providing observations. A Spiritual Director is trained in noticing the transformative movements of the Spirit and leads with the certainty from deep patterns.
"My spiritual practice is to sit each day in childlike sincerity with the inner stance that offers the least resistance to being overtaken by Grace."

"There is no greater power than a community discovering
what it cares about."
