Looking Ahead to Week Three of Our Online Retreat for Catechists!

I’m looking forward to our third week together in this online retreat for catechists, as we continue to look at the spirituality of the catechist. Thank you for sharing your thoughts about the first characteristic of our spirituality: an openness to God. Please continue to do so throughout the weekend! Click here for this past week’s experience.

Next week, we will be taking a close look at another aspect of our spirituality as catechists: an openness to the Church. In the meantime, let’s pray for each other as we celebrate the Eucharist this Sunday, the 12th Sunday of the year.

BTW, I have a favor to ask of you! Thanks to my colleague, Linnette, we now have the capabilities of taking polls! Would you kindly take the poll below to test this new feature? Thanks!

IN AN EFFORT TO BETTER SERVE YOU AS WE MOVE FORWARD, I’D LIKE YOUR OPINION. I USED 2 DIFFERENT FILMING TECHNIQUES FOR THE VIDEOS FOR THE FIRST 2 WEEKS OF THE RETREAT. WEEK ONE (6/8) AND WEEK TWO (6/15). WHICH FILMING TECHNIQUE DO YOU PREFER?

  1. You look more relaxed in the week two video, probably since it isn’t such a tight shot . . . I was a little distracted by the passing traffic (slightly visible behind the curtain backdrop).

  2. I agree with Ellen you looked more relaxed. I rather have no noise while you are talking because I get easily distracted.

  3. When I saw the first week, I kept wondering when you were going to look at the camera. The second week felt much more inviting to me, because you were looking at your audience.
