It’s time to kick-off the catechetical year!
Tomorrow evening, Tuesday, August 28, 2012, I’ll be hosting a free Webinar – Teaching During a Year of Faith – to explore how we can more effectively proclaim Jesus Christ to those we are called to teach this year. Be sure to click that link above to find a Note-Taking Sheet in PDF form that you can download for the Webinar!
This evening, I’ll be attending the start-of-the-year catechist meeting at Most Holy Redeemer Parish in Evergreen Park, IL, where I will begin serving as a 6th grade catechist in just 2 weeks! I look forward to meeting my fellow 6th grade catechists and my aide. We’re in for a treat tonight as my friend and colleague from Loyola Press, Joyce Ende, will be doing an overview of the new Finding God 2013 textbooks. I promised her I will behave and not make any faces at her while she’s presenting!
Finally, a great big THANK YOU to all of you who participated in the online retreat we held here over the past month, Preparing for a Year of Faith. I was so inspired by the many thoughtful comments that participants shared! Soon, I’ll post a link that will take you to the retreat and help you navigate easily through the 4 weeks. In the meantime, here’s the video that introduced the whole concept of the online retreat.
