Catechetical Sunday Resources

NCCL has provided a Catechetical Sunday webpage with various digital tools to assist catechists in the ongoing journey to deepen their prayer lives.  For example, the USCCB Leadership Institute has webinars and vignettes (brief videos such as To Sing is to Pray Twice) to help unpack the theme. There's a link to an app for catechists, and more.  JPII Resources also has a prayer journal for catechists based on "The Faith Prayed".
