Tonight is our first catechist meeting of the year – an opportunity to “report for duty” and to get the scoop on what this year holds in store for us. Yes, we’ll get our class lists tonight so I can see how many kids I have (our DRE is very good at keeping class size no larger than 15) as well as their family information and special needs, if any. I’ll also find out what room I’m assigned to and who my aid will be. The pastor is usually there to say a few words of inspiration, guidance, and affirmation as well as appreciation. The DRE always puts together a nice prayer service to set the tone and to place our ministry within a context of prayer. I look forward to tonight’s meeting and I’ll post on it tomorrow.
Best wishes to fellow catechists who also have their first catechist meeting this week!
