What our Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) Style Program NEEDS MOST is trained catechists!
Thanks to a generous donor family, our parish is able to cover ALL tuition costs for catechist formation courses. If you are willing and able to take the 90 hours of training, please call Suzy Rhadigan, our CTR Director of Children’s Formation at 248-391-1621 ext. 120 to register.

After your training you will be considered “officially” certified in the Archdiocese of Detroit as well as with the National Organization of the Montessori-based Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Method of Formation (CLICK HERE).
