Advent imageA great big THANK YOU to everyone who participated in the Advent Webinar last evening! In that Webinar, I promised that I would make a number of resources available to you, so here you go!

Here are links to Advent resources on the Loyola Press Website:

Finally, here are links to the books I mentioned in the Webinar, just in case you’d like to take a closer look (remember, you can save 20% on these titles if you order before November 27, 2009 and use promotional code Advent1):

    I attended the webinar live. Great job! Love the use of webinar for this purpose. The main part of the presentation, the four themes based on the four Advent Gospels from Luke and the accompanying age-appropriate activities were excellent. Couple of pieces of constructive criticism re: format … first, you almost lost me during the initial 20 minutes … they were pretty much a waste of time and I feared did not bode well for the remainder of the webinar because they were so lacking in content. (Luckily I stuck around for the meat of the presentation … well worth slugging through the initial 20 min.) Second, the first 20 minutes were way too heavy on promoting your website … a bit of overkill when you incorporated a participant request to repeat it again… slowly. Suggestion … include the URLs for your blog and the Loyola Press website in the footer of each slide. Overall … job well done and I look forward to more! (FYI … apologies for lenghthy post to your comments section, but I was not presented a post-webinar survey.)

      Thanks, Bridget. I’m glad you found the info drawn from the Advent Gospels to be helpful. I appreciate the feedback as well about the first 20 minutes that you found less helpful. I’m glad you were patient and stuck around to get the part that you found most helpful. I’m learning that folks want to get right into the meat of things in a webinar. By the same token, I’m conscious of the many beginning catechists who were eager for basic background info on the liturgical calendar and the Advent season per se such as I offered in the first 20 mintues. Finding the right balance is the key!

    Thank you for sharing your insights and ideas around the catechesis of Advent. It was very informative and I walked away with a number of new ideas. You’ve done a terrific job, as usual!

    God bless.

    Thank you so much for the very informative Webinar and for making the resources available so quickly. This was my first experience at an online seminar. What a way to learn!!! Love the fact I don’t have to go further than my living room to receive A-plus guidance. I look forward to using what I learned and to learning more from future broadcasts you will have.
