Catechetical Ministries in Motion

St. Isidore the Farmer, Orange Cove 

Thank you to the new parish ministry leadership at St. Isidore the Farmer in Orange Cove for inviting me to have a sit-down with them and share a couple of pointers as to what they might expect in their new catechetical ministry roles.

We talked about the importance of planning, having a curriculum along with lesson plans to support the primary resource that is being used along with other practical tips.

As many parishes have found themselves with new ministry leaders, it is important for new leadership, along with leadership in general, to know that as their new role takes shape and form that the transition is a lot smoother when they bear witness of life and of service to others, especially to those they will eventually lead.
