The new Directory for Catechesis is here, and it’s time to unpack the wealth of information and inspiration this document offers to all of us in the catechetical ministry. I’d like to help with that and can think of no better catechetical expert to join me than Julianne Stanz, author, speaker, and Director of New Evangelization for the Diocese of Green Bay, WI. Please join us for this exciting experience:
How the New Directory for Catechesis Will Change the Way We Think About, Talk About, and Go About Doing Catechesis
Tuesday, September 1, 2020
1:30–3:00 p.m. (CDT)
While the Gospel is unchanging, the way we proclaim it needs to change with the times. The previous General Directory for Catechesis (1997) was written before anyone had ever heard of selfies, Wikipedia, streaming music, gender reveal parties, or even Google! Our world changes at a fast and furious pace, and we in the catechetical ministry need to adapt the way we present the timeless message of Jesus Christ to each generation. This Zoom experience will provide participants with an overview of the new Directory for Catechesis (2020), along with implications for how we think about, talk about, and go about doing the work of catechesis.
I’m trying to register for the workshop on the new Directory for Catechesis, but when I click on the link, the page opens and just sits there without allowing me to click the register button. I’ve tried a few times at different hours without success. Has anyone else reported this? Is the link not active yet? Thank you!
Hi Douglas, I just tried it on my cell phone and it worked with no problem and I know we have registrations coming through. Can you try on another device. If you continue to have problems, contact me at Paprocki@loyolapress.com and we’ll figure it out. Thanks. joe
Thank you, Joe. The phone registration does work, but the one through a web browser is still not working for some reason. I registered via phone in any case. Looking forward to this conversation. 🙂
Is this available as a recording?
Yes, Kathleen! Here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rOoNW_oqAtE
