"The catechist observes and studies the vital needs of the child and the manifestations of those vital needs according to the developmental stage of the child. The catechists live with the child a shared religious experience according to the teaching of the gospel: "Except you become like little children, you cannot enter the kingdom of God."
(Matthew 18:3). The catechist attends to the conditions which are necessary for this life to be experienced and to flourish." (Taken from the 32 Points of Reflection of CGS)
