I had a wonderful weekend in New York, visting with catechists at the NY Catechetical Convocation in White Plains on Saturday. The room had a capacity for 135 but folks kept streaming in, standing along the walls or sitting on the floor to join in on our conversation around the theme of “So What? Why Do We Have to Know This?” I picked that title to capture critical question that young people are asking us (whether directly or indirectly) – what does the Gospel have to do with my life? We had a wonderful workshop together albeit a bit too short (an hour – isn’t that always our problem as catechists – never enough time!)
Thanks to all who participated. My apologies for running short on handouts. I brought just enough to handle the room’s capacity…I never imagined we would have such an overflow. For your convenience, I’m making it available here in pdf format.
As always, if you’d like to keep the conversation going, post a comment or send me an email!
Thanks, New York, for your hospitality. What a wonderful place to celebrate my birthday weekend!
