The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) is a Montessori-based Catholic faith formation program in which children can grow in their relationship with God through lessons in Scripture and Liturgy. CGS is based on the belief that God and the child are already in relationship with each other. A special place is provided for the child to grow in that relationship with Jesus, the Good Shepherd. This place is called the Atrium and is prepared with materials designed for the children to work with to draw them deeper into the essentials of our faith. This program will be offered to children ages 3 and 4 this fall on Sunday mornings after the 9:30 am Mass. Contact Jenny Comstock at 697-1159 for more information. Visit the CGS website at www.cgsusa.org.

Welcome

St. Joseph's Church has a very long history with many stories. Part of its history is as a welcoming community for joining parishes of St. Paul of the Cross (1864), Dayton; St. Elizabeth (1939), Cherry Creek; St. John Fisher (1940), Dayton; St. Joan of Arc (1950), Perrysburg; and St. Joseph’s Church, (1898) Gowanda.

Together we continue to move forward and bring the Gospel message to our larger overall community. I hope that you might join us in continuing to bring the message of Jesus Christ to others, as we continue on our pilgrim journey each day.
