It’s hard to believe that tomorrow evening is the first catechist meeting of the year for the 2013-14 catechetical year!
I will once again be teaching 6th grade (Finding God), however, I will be doing so at a new parish! I will now be at St. Cajetan Parish on the far southside of Chicago, about 5 minutes south of my home in Evergreen Park.
With the retirement of Arlene Astrowski, the DRE at Most Holy Redeemer parish, where I’ve served as a catechist these past 6 years or so, I thought it was a good opportunity for me to change venues as a way of providing you with as many diverse experiences in catechesis as possible here on my blog. The DRE at St. Cajetan, Deb Breakey, was kind enough to offer me a spot and so I look forward to this new experience! I don’t encourage this kind of jumping around for most catechists, however, I am in a unique position of “reporting” on the life of a catechist from the inside through my blog. I look forward to keeping you up to date with my experiences beginning with tomorrow evening’s catechist meeting!
