Looking Ahead…Blended Faith Formation Programs for Catechetical Year, 2020-2021

This COVID-19 pandemic has challenged us in more ways than one. Religion publishers have been arduously working to provide our parish faith formation programs with the best resources to serve and minister to children, youth, adults, parents, families, and RCIA. Directors for Catechetical Ministry and catechists are now tasked to re-imagine catechetical sessions with students preparing for sacraments or adapting a lesson into a blended session where you meet virtually, but still do not lose that sense of community despite social distancing.   As we begin to envision faith formation in the upcoming year, we are getting a head start and are hosting a Virtual Curriculum Webinar series Tuesday-Thursday, June 2-4, 2020. We will host two sessions each day, a publisher will go in depth on what they have to offer and how you can adapt their catechetical resources to your classroom set up, whether online, hybrid or in person.  These sessions are intended to inform you of the possible avenues you can take, providing you with the necessary tools and resources for you to be successful in your ministry. See the event details below…
