Officially organized in August 1997, Lake Michigan Catechists was developed out of a desire by regional catechists to promote the work of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd in the area made up of Greater Chicago, Southeast Wisconsin and Northwest Indiana.

Over the years it has supported catechists and churches with scholarships for approved formation courses, sponsored regional gatherings and supported events of the National Association of CGS-USA such as the 60th Anniversary Celebration in 2014.

In 2012, with the establishment of the Tina Lillig Formation Center for Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, the group now organizes courses and workshops throughout the area to share the love of the Good Shepherd just as Tina Lillig did for all of us!
