Summer Reading for Catechists

Summer is a good time for catechists to get some spiritual enrichment from reading. More often than not, however, catechists I speak to are not sure of where and how they can locate Catholic publishers to explore their reading materials. I recommend the following resource: the Member Directory of The Catholic Book Publishers Association ( From their Web page, you can identify various Catholic publishers and then follow the links to the publishers’ own Web sites where you can explore their reading materials.

As always, when you find something good, please share it with readers of my blog!

P.S. If you had trouble earlier with the link above, try again…I fixed it!
