202. Getting Started as a Catechist 

Getting Started as a Catechist introduces new (and existing) catechists to some basics that will help them take their first steps as catechists. They will learn how to set up their classroom space, how to create an appropriate social climate for catechesis, appropriate ways to use creative activities, and the basics of session planning.  All catechists and aides are invited!


At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Create the physical environment for catechesis
  • Provide a social environment in which faith can be nurtured
  • Use creative activities in learning
  • Develop successful lesson plans
  • Develop good behavior management and discipline techniques
  • Help learners pray together
