I hope the summer months have been a time of renewal for you, and I hope you were fortunate enough to have some time off to enjoy the warmth and sunshine that this time of the year blesses us with. While I was able to take some time off, we kept the wheels turning here at Catechist’s Journey with daily posts designed to speak to a variety of issues and challenges that we face in the catechetical ministry. It’s very possible, then, that you may have missed some of these posts during your vacation or as you turned your attention to summer activities other than catechesis! With that in mind, I’d like to share with you my 10 favorite Catechist’s Journey posts from the summer, just in case you missed them.

  1. Probably the Most Important Paragraph in a Church Document: RCIA #75
  2. The Catechist as a Personal Trainer for Prayer Life
  3. Don’t Chase God: Be Caught Instead
  4. Teaching the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist
  5. Solidarity and an Openness to the World
  6. The Magnificat and Devotion to Our Lady
  7. Biblical Literacy for Catechists: Adam and Eve
  8. Kids Need Ignatian Prayer
  9. Ice-Cream Evangelization: Reaching Out During the Summer
  10. Learning by Empowerment

I hope you enjoy these and find them beneficial to your ministry as you prepare to tackle the upcoming catechetical year!
