End of the Catechetical Year Resources

2 1/2 stars on rating scale

With April here, many catechetical programs are beginning to wind down for the year. This is a perfect time to do some evaluation and reflection on your year as a catechist.

Over the past few years, I’ve developed some end-of-the-year resources that catechists and catechetical leaders can use for this very purpose. I offer them to you once again so that you can continue to grow in your vocation as a catechist. You might consider using these resources on your own, with a group of fellow catechists, or with your catechetical leader.

  1. Thank you for these resources. I’m going to pass the assessment on to our DRE for our catechists. I think it is really beneficial to evaluate the year while it is still fresh. And so when preparing for next year, it gives me a starting point of what I did well and what I need to work on. We only have a couple of classes left and I’m sad and happy at the same time. Thankfully I’ll see many of the kids again during VBS and weekly at mass over the summer.
