Now Available: Slide Presentations for the Effective Catechetical Leader Series

The Effective Catechetical Leader series

I am excited to announce that the slide presentations I’ve created for The Effective Catechetical Leader series are now available. When we at Loyola Press collaborated with the good folks at NCCL (National Conference for Catechetical Leadership), we talked about developing some ancillary materials that would enhance diocesan efforts to offer formation and training opportunities for catechetical leaders. It became obvious very early on that one such resource would be PowerPoint presentations—one for each of the six books in the series—along with scripts, to assist diocesan presenters in bringing the content to life for participants in formation as catechetical leaders.

The Effective Catechetical Leader series (also available in Spanish), written by some of the top catechetical leaders in the country, is the only series to encompass all aspects of catechetical leadership. This series provides the practical skills, strategies, and approaches that ensure successful parish faith formation in an evangelizing manner, which leads directly to a vibrant Church.

The slide presentations capture the essence and core content of each of the six titles in the series:

  • Called by Name
  • Cultivating Your Catechists
  • All God’s People
  • Catechetical Leadership
  • Developing Disciples of Christ
  • Excellence in Ministry
