The Guild of the Good Shepherd is a regional group, which supports and promotes the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) program to churches throughout the New England area.

For those of you unfamiliar, CGS is an approach to the religious formation of children for ages 3-12. It is rooted in scripture, liturgy, and the educational principles of Maria Montessori. The program believes that God is already present to children. It is the purpose of this program to deepen that relationship.

CGS is used by Anglican, Roman Catholic and other Christian churches in this region, the United States and throughout the world.

One of the main purposes of the Guild is to provide training for the CGS program. So far, the Guild has offered dozens of Formation courses in the Metro-Boston area since 2002. Please view our Training page for more information.

Please feel free to contact the Guild of the Good Shepherd with any questions you may have.
