Catechists in Action – An Evening with Nick

Last night, I attended 5th grade catechist Nick Yonto’s religious education session at Sts. Peter and Paul Parish in Cary, IL. This was the first installment of my new feature, Catechists in Action, in which I will be visiting and videotaping catechists in the Chicago area, and posting about the experience here on my blog.

I thoroughly enjoyed Nick’s class last evening and am working with my colleagues here at Loyola Press to ready the videotape to be posted over the next few days as I highlight the various aspects of Nick’s teaching style and his overall teaching experience.

Thanks to DRE Terri Zybylut for welcoming me and allowing me to videotape Nick in action. Thanks Nick, for being my first Catechist in Action! Great job last night!

Stay tuned for more on Nick’s class!
