Websites for Catechists

We live in a new age, don’t we? There is so much available to us on the Internet that we, as catechists, can take advantage of. I’ve provided a list of links to a lot of my favorite Catholic Web sites in the right hand column of my blog’s homepage. I hope you get a chance to peruse some of them to see how they can be of help to you in your catechesis. Of course, most of our textbook publishers provide excellent Web resources as well. I know that for the text book I am using (Finding God for junior high), I go to www.FindingGod.com to find lots of assistance.

What Catholic Web sites do you recommend for catechists to add to their links?

  1. Hi, Joe – great question – catechists should choose and use web resources carefully.

    All the major faith formation text publishers have their own web pages, and certainly catechists should visit the one for their text series regularly. In addition, I’d recommend these:

    http://www.catechistsonline.com – resources, current issues, idea exchange, etc.

    http://www.catholiccatechist.org – free printable resources, message board for sharing

  2. Thanks, Joyce. American Catholic is one of my favorites…good comprehensible explanations about just about any aspect of our faith.
