It’s a New Year, so it must be time for a new book by Joe Paprocki!
Well, almost time! Here is the cover for my upcoming book, co-authored with my good friend Julianne Stanz: The Catechist’s Backpack: Spiritual Essentials for the Journey. The General Directory for Catechesis tells us that catechists must be formed in three areas: being, knowing, and doing (#238). I’ve provided catechists with books on doing the work of a catechist and on knowing what a catechist needs to know. Now, here is what you’ll need to focus on the being aspect, or, our spirituality. I’ll have ordering information available for you soon.
