Feeding My Soul with Disappointment, Emergence, and Prayer

Feeding My Soul is designed especially for you—the catechist. It names a catechetical value and gives you the words of prayer for your personal time with the Lord.

End-of-Year Inventory

Piles of Bibles. Workbooks. Boxes of pens. Stacks of papers.

Advice from Master Catechists – March 2010

What can I do about a student who is behind the rest of the class? What can I say to a catechist who uses a lot of personal finances in her ministry?

Seek the Oasis

Fight or flight. This, we are taught, is our primitive and automatic response whenever perceiving an attack or threat.

The Word of God and Mary of Nazareth

Dei Verbum. "The Word of God" is the title for the Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation.

Teach Us to Pray

The question is often asked today, "Are we teaching our children, our young people, and our adults how to pray?"

Faith Formation Opportunities

We catechists are busy people, generous with our time. Still, we want to expand our spiritual horizons, as Isaiah counsels in this Scripture passage.

Service, Nourishment, Commitment: Teaching about Holy Thursday

Our students miss so much of the richness and meaning of Christ's passion, death, and Resurrection if we neglect to teach them about Holy Thursday and the other celebrations of the Triduum.

The Search for Silence

"Keep quiet." "Be still." "No talking."
