Catechesis Young Lambs

In Young Lambs the two- to three-year-old child spends time enjoying and nurturing a relationship with the Good Shepherd. This is preparation for the child’s future years in the atrium, but it is also a precious time in their spiritual lives. It is our joy to work with children this young and to introduce them to the one who calls them by name.

Young Lambs will have the following presentations twice and then be integrated into the Level One atrium around mid-February:

I am the light of the world
I am the Good Shepherd
Psalm 23:1
Altar Work
Liturgical Colors
Birth of Jesus
Adoration of the Shepherds
Adoration of the Magi
Parable of the Leaven
Practical Life
Prayer

Young Lambs is unlike the other atria in that there is a lot of hand work and art produced. Sometimes it is time to be in the atrium, and sometimes it is time to be in God’s creation (or the playground). We are attuned to the child’s need for joyful expression and motion.
