A Different Kind of Webinar

Many of you are familiar with the many free webinars I’ve offered over the past few years for catechists and catechetical ministers in general. If so, you are also familiar with my friend and colleague Carrie Freyer who works behind the scenes on these webinars, answering your questions and seeing to the needs of participants. Well, Carrie is going to step out from the shadows and join me at the microphone as together we offer a different kind of Webinar on Tuesday, August 21, 2012, that will be by invitation only! The Webinar will be for users of the newly revised 2013 Finding God: Our Response to God’s Gifts (grades 1-6) curriculum. This webinar will assist catechists, teachers, catechetical leaders, and principals in mining the riches of this extraordinary program. We will go over the children’s books and catechist manuals as well as the many other resources that come with the program – online resources, posters, Exploring Faith through Art easels, and more.

Finding God 2013

We will offer one Webinar for Catholic school teachers at 2:00 pm (CT) and another one for parish religious education catechists at 7:00 pm (CT), both on August 21, 2012. Again, you must be a user of the 2013 Finding God curriculum in order to participate in this Webinar.

If you have yet to arrange purchase of the 2013 Finding God curriculum for your parish religious education program and/or Catholic school beginning for this Fall and would like the assistance that Carrie and I will offer through this unique webinar, contact Carrie Freyer now to get the wheels in motion on your order.

P.S. I will also be offering one of my standard Webinars, open to ALL catechists, on Tuesday, August 28 at 7 PM (CT). We will explore how to get ready to teach during the Year of Faith! More info to follow soon!

    I have been volunteering with St. Brigid’s Faith formation program in Westbury New York for 4 years. They purchased the book for the fifth grade teachers. I have been consistantly a fifth grade teacher.
    My biggest challenge is that I do the Webinar at the public library with ear pieces. The library closes at 9 P.M. Eastern stardard time. I am always being cut short by the library’s equipment closing down. Other techinal challenges with the library equipment can prevent me from getting sound.
    In any case, I try to learn something from the presentation.
