Welcome back to Stories on the Journey, our summer experience of sharing stories about the ups and downs and ins and outs of being a catechist. So far, we’ve shared stories on the following topics:
- Week One: How Did I Get Into This?
- Week Two: Kids Say/Do the Darndest Things
- Week Three: Touching the Sacred
- Week Four: Oopsies! I Goofed
Our topic for this week is, “I owe it all to…” which means that we will be sharing stories about our mentors. Who inspired and/or influenced you most in your role as a catechetical minister? Who do you try to emulate when you teach? What is/was so inspirational about this person’s approach to teaching that made you want to follow in his or her footsteps and become a catechist or DRE?
Share a brief story (in the Comments box below) – just one or two paragraphs -describing your thoughts about someone who was a mentor for you. Then, return each day this week to read others’ stories and to comment on them if you wish. You can also go back and comment on stories from previous weeks or to add your own stories.
I’m looking forward to hearing from you! I’ll start the parade with a story about one of my mentors (see the Comments below).
