The past few years have upended many traditional ways of carrying out the ministry of catechesis. As catechetical leaders consider ways to provide a full range of resources to families as well as how to recruit and retain catechists, the need for creative approaches remains vital.  Join us for an engaging online session as we mine the enormous potential of the current moment and look toward shaping the future of catechesis with a spirit of hope and joy. We thank Sadlier Religion for making this Webinar possible.
