Sofia Cavalletti, a Scripture scholar, and Gianna Gobbi, a Montessorian, collaborated and began to work with children. Over the next 60 years, they developed materials and curriculum that spoke to the child’s religious potential and offered an opportunity for prayer, meditation, and religious development.

                                                                                              The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd strives to reveal the religious potential of the child and respond to their spiritual needs and qualities. It seeks to help children grow and mature in their faith and their relationship with Christ.
