Catechesis of the Good Shepherd  Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, the program that we use at St. John’s for preK- elementary age children, is a beautiful Christ-centered environment in which the children and catechists pray and work in the atrium.

 “The atrium is a community in which the children and adults live together a religious experience which facilitates participation in the wider community of the family, the church and other social spheres.

The atrium is a place of prayer, in which work and study spontaneously become meditation, contemplation and prayer.

The atrium is a place in which the only Teacher is Christ; both children and adults place themselves in a listening stance before his Word and seek to penetrate the mystery of the liturgical celebration.” (32 Points of Reflection

 We would like to invite children who are new to the atrium to join us Sunday, August 19th, 26th, and September 2nd for a time of orientation beginning at 10:15am. All classes will resume on September 9th, our first day of Sunday School! If you have questions, please contact Lisa Estes at 817.600.8552 or email:

Wednesday Bible Study  The Wednesday morning 9:30 Bible study class will resume on Wednesday, September 12, as will the Wednesday 11:00 Mass. The class will begin the new school year with an overview and discussion of the Deuterocanonical books of Scripture, and where they fit in the bigger picture of Old Testament literature..
