Talking to Parents about CGS in Plain Language

CCT in Context January 2018 by Rev. Catherine Powell

Sometimes those of us who know the value of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd don’t know how to tell other people about it. We are drawn to it because of its deep rootedness in the heart of our faith, but it may be particularly hard to speak about it with people on the outskirts of the faith community. In order to invite these people into the experience of CGS, we need to use everyday language. We need to speak in ways understandable to parents who may not use the same language we do, but are acutely aware of needs that CGS might meet.
