Now that we have journeyed through our online retreat for catechists, let me tell you what’s up next for Catechist’s Journey: FREE WEBINARS!
“Getting Started as a Catechist: Welcome to the Catechist’s Toolbox”
Facilitator: Joe Paprocki, DMin
Brought to you by Loyola Press, A Jesuit Ministry
Wednesday, August 19, 2009: Part One
Wednesday, August 26, 2009: Part Two

Becoming a catechist is exciting and, let’s face it, somewhat intimidating! New catechists are eager to learn some basic teaching skills to help them gain confidence as they begin their service in this vocation. These Webinars will provide catechists, both those who are new and those who’d like to refresh their skills, with an introduction to the basic tools needed to effectively engage young people in faith formation.
Some of the topics covered in these Webinars include:
· 10 things you can do NOW to become instantly effective as a catechist
· Lesson planning and preparation
· The role of discipline
· Polishing your technique
· Plugging into the power of prayer
Both Webinars are led by Joe Paprocki, an 8th-grade catechist in the Archdiocese of Chicago with over 30 years of experience in pastoral ministry. Joe, National Consultant for Faith Formation at Loyola Press, is the author of numerous books including the best-selling The Catechist’s Toolbox and A Well-Built Faith, as well as the host of the blog Catechist’s Journey.
