Editing Away

I am currently editing a new resource for people working with the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults as adapted for children of catechetical age.

Written by an experienced catechist, I am marveling at the way she approaches catechetical topics such as the Trinity, the parables of Jesus, and discipleship, among many others. It will be several months before we are ready for publication. I haven't ministered directly with children for quite some time now, so this is really a breath of fresh air.

The methodology is pretty straightforward. Each "session" includes lots of prayer time, icebreakers, scripture readings, activities, and rituals that are based on the topic. I am sure this is going to be a helpful resource for those ministering with children in the RCIA.

This is what is taking up lots of my time these days, and I am liking it.

Gotta sing. Gotta pray.

Hello Carol. We are hoping that this first part of a two part manual will be ready by the end of the year. This particular one is a manual for catechists in the precatechumenate period. Jerry
