Item Description...
Looking for a way to bring the families in your parish into an enriching and rewarding process of catechesis? This is the book for you! Karen Howard describes a very successful pilot program that incorporates a lectionary-based curriculum with the teaching of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, along with an overview of Catholic history, prayers and customs and traditions. Her program has three major goals: * To involve both children and their parents in the process of catechesis; * To increase the attendance of families at Sunday liturgy; * To renew a sense of Sunday Sabbath as a day of rest and recreation. In addition to including the Catechism of the Catholic Church in the basic lesson plan, this family-based model also emphasizes one of the essential messages of the General Directory for Catechesis, that is, to link the Sunday liturgy with the catechetical process in the parish. The author offers suggestions for how to involve key parish leaders in the initial planning, how to bring parents on board when presenting a new approach, and ongoing ways to evaluate the process. This is a highly practical and very encouraging resource for all who want to improve and diversify the process of religious education in their parish.
