Catechist In-Service: September 18, 2019
How can we prepare our students to understand their faith and be able to talk about it? Father DiTomo and Donna Doherty discussed ways to incorporate the Catechetical Theme from the USCCB - Stay With Us, The Lost Sheep Scriptures from 9/15/19, upcoming events and projects. We also learned about what it means to be spiritual and leading a more 'Tuned In' way of life for ourselves. (Catechists, Aides and Volunteers received the book, Tuned In). This helps us to be better Catholic Christians and better Catechists! Earn 2 hours Continuing Education credit for attending class! Just fill out the Catechist Assessment. Complete the packet of Catechist Formation lessons and earn 2 more credits! Turn in your answers to the questions whenever you have completed them to Donna Doherty, Director of Faith Formation.
