Atrium WoodWorks grew out of the satisfaction Mike Kwitowski received from making wooden lesson materials in his home-based workshop for his parish's Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) atrium, where his wife is a Level 1-3 trained catechist. Since 2009, Mike provided hundreds of Atria with quality materials. He retired from Atrium Woodworks in 2019.
In 2018, catechist Meagen Howe started Mustard Seed Training with the same vision: to provide materials and support for fellow catechists and parents. Meagen trained under Mike Kwitowski to continue providing atrium materials using his methods and templates. Wooden materials previously provided through Atrium Woodworks (AWW) are marked on our website with the AWW logo:
Mustard Seed Training has been approved by the U.S. Association of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd to partner as a vendor member.
All CGS materials are supplied unfinished allowing the catechist to finish them in accordance with the CGS Method. We hope the materials available here will assist you in completing your CGS atrium!
