Here’s a wonderful e-mail from a 7th grade catechist who offers some very inspiring words about his vocation.
I stumbled across your website about a month ago when I was really searching for some inspiration for my next class. I am in my first year serving as a catechist for 7th graders. I’ve started out the way so many catechists probably do, teaching their own kids. My son is in 7th grade, thus, that is what I am teaching.I’ve discovered that this is one of the most rewarding things I will ever do and can see myself continuing on this path!.Anyway, I just wanted to send you a “thank you” note for the wonderful bits of information that you provide and I’m sure I will eventually have the nerve to put myself out there and make some contributions on the public comments section.Keep up the great work and God bless you!
I wanted my pre Lenten class to be really meaningful.
I wanted the children in my sixth grade class to be really prepared for this Holy Season. In listening to your FAQ’s on Lent coupled with the text book
history and story….highlighting pertinent words on the board, we had the best and most meaningful discussion ever.
When we go to Mass together on Ash Wednesday,
I feel the children will be more engaged, informed and prayerfully ready
for Lent in preparation for the most Glorious Celebration of our Christian
faith ….the Joy of Christ’s RESURRECTION on Easter Sunday.
Thank you for your help and guidance.
May God’s Light continue to inspire you .
Kathleen, what wonderful news! I’m so glad that I can be of help. I hope you have a wonderful Lenten season and may you and your 6th graders continue to grow closer to our Lord! Peace.
