Look at what the following catechists are saying about their calling:
Tim: “It seems to be in my blood to teach of our faith, and I have enjoyed every step of the way. With each class it seems to reaffirm my love for teaching!”
Edith: “I am glad the Lord has called me to this ministry in serving Him in his children. May His name be praised.”
Carol: “What better way to embrace the faith than by sharing it through teaching the children. They have taught me and enriched my faith more than I could have possibly imagined.”
You can find more great stories like these and share your own story about how you became a catechist, DRE, or religion teacher (any kind of catchetical minister) right here on my blog as we spend the summer sharing Stories on the Journey.
All summer long, I will be inviting you to share your stories about your experiences as catechists – the joys, frustrations, hilarious moments, sacred moments, challenges, opportunities, successes, not-so-successful moments, creative moments, mentors and heroes, and callings. Each week, I’ll post a topic inviting you to share a brief story here on my blog (by typing in the LEAVE A COMMENT box at the end of my post).
- Keep your story brief – 1 or 2 paragraphs is fine.
- Return each day to read the stories that others are posting
- Feel free to comment on one another’s stories
- You need not share your full name…first names will do
This week’s topic is: HOW DID I GET INTO THIS? – Share your story about how you came to be a catechist, religion teacher, DRE (any type of catechetical minister).

I can’t wait to hear from you!!!
