The Level 2 formation course offers an orientation to the theological concepts fundamental to this ministry with children. It introduces the foundational biblical and liturgical themes that we present to children, through a combination of conversation, reflection and presentation -- these delivered as we would share them with children. The course also offers opportunities to work with Montessori-style, catechetical materials that have been designed to nurture children’s prayer.
This 90-hour course is especially designed for those who are interested in or already involved in caring for the spiritual lives of children, in a home, parish or school setting. This course is open to all who have already completed the Level I Foundations Course. It is a prerequisite for further adult formation courses in the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Certificate Program (Level III).
