http://www.catechistsjourney.com New catechists are eager to learn some basic teaching skills to help them gain confidence as they begin their service in this vocation. These Webinars, hosted by Joe Paprocki, will provide catechists, both those who are new and those who'd like to refresh their skills, with an introduction to the basic tools needed to effectively engage young people in faith formation.
These videos are one part of a two week event. The videos are divided into chapters for easy viewing.
http://catechistsjourney.loyolapress.com/ At this time of the year, many catechists are coming to the end of their teaching schedules. This is a good time to pause and take stock—to engage in a self-evaluation in order to grow as a catechist. In this Webinar, Joe Paprocki invites catechists to evaluate their efforts this year in light of 7 critical tools (skills and qualities) drawn from his book The Catechists Toolbox.
This Webinar will assume a very different flavor from the previous ones in that the focus will be on answering 7 poll questions (one for each of the 7 tools), resulting in a highly interactive and fast-paced experience.
In the days following the Webinar, Joe will answer questions on his blog, Catechists Journey. If you would like to receive Joes blog posts by e-mail, click here.

Joe, national consultant for faith formation at Loyola Press, is the author of numerous books, including the best-selling The Catechists Toolbox and A Well-Built Faith.
