Online Resources for Catechists

Be sure to check out a couple of very helpful online resources for catechists:

  • Doreen Gerczak is a religion coordinator and instructor for grades 6, 7, and 8 at St. Edward’s Catholic Community in Spring, Texas. She invites catechists to her site “Catholic Catechist” – ( – dedicated to providing Catholic resources, lesson plans and classroom ideas to catechists worldwide. She also has a discussion group.
  • Gilles Côté, located in Canada, taught grades 7 through 12 for 23 years in Catholic schools and has been involved in faith education in various ways at the parish level and in the larger community: in confirmation preparation classes, in RCIA as a catechist, in Baptism preparation sessions for parents, as facilitator in a faith sharing group, and as a member of a parish pastoral council. He invites you to his site “Resources for Catholic Educators” – ( – which provides links, lesson plans, clip art, coloring pages, crossword puzzles, and a newsletter for Catholic catechists. He also invites you to his other site “” ( – which is a portal to information on the Catholic Faith and to resources for teachers, catechists, directors of religious education, and more.

I appreciate the fact that both of these sites have given a plug to my blog! I am returning the favor!
