Spiritual Wellness Virtual Retreats

During the pandemic, when most of us were isolated in our homes, we struggled to maintain our emotional and spiritual wellness.

Bookmark the Online Retreat for Catechists to Use During the Year

During June and July, many catechists from all over the world participated in on online retreat here at Catechist’s Journey, focusing on the spirituality of the catechist. I’ve been getting some inquiries from people about whether or not they can participate in the retreat during the upcoming catechetical year. The answer is CERTAINLY! Of course there won’t be as much interaction as there was when the retreat was “live” but all of the content is still […]
