Thanks to the 75-80 catechetical leaders who spent the day with me Wednesday in Newark, New Jersey, exploring ways of forming catechists in the dimensions of Being, Knowing, and Doing. It was a wonderful day and I enjoyed meeting so many of you and talking with you about all things catechetical. Thanks to Ron Pihokker (Director of the Catechetical Office) and to Associate Directors Betsy Foer, Joe Silvoy, and Gene Tozzi, for their hospitality and professionalism.
This was a splendid way for me to complete my travels for 2010. (Topped off with a yummy Philly Cheese Steak sandwich and a cold beer at the airport in Philly!) Thanks to all the wonderful catechists and catechetical leaders from all over the country who welcomed me into their dioceses this past year!
Here are the folks in Newark working hard at their tables sharing ideas about catechist formation.
