A number of dioceses in Canada are carrying out a children formation program named “Catechesis of the Good Shepherd”. It helps children to build a relationship with Jesus since they are young. By introducing them to the Bible and church liturgies, this helps them establish a good foundation for future faith formation. The program benefits not only the children, but also the teachers. The teachers are touched by the children’s love for God, which often results in their own conversion and spiritual growth.
