This presentation was given to teens to educate them about the affects of climate change. All those who work with learners can gain good understanding and principles of teaching about this important subject.
Celebrating the Feast Day of St. Francis-Care for Creation
October 4th is the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi. As one of our most popular saints, his feast strikes a chord with all of us in his love and high respect of all of life. Whether by an action or education, find ways to be more intentional about the state of our earth and help your learners become good stewards. Pope Francis wrote an encyclical called Laudato Si (Care for our Common Home). This teaching is guiding the church in ways to approach climate change that is affecting our planet. Check out some of these resources to assist with lesson planning.

Celebrating our Catechists on Catechetical Sunday 2018
Firstly, catechesis is not a “job” or a task that is external to the person who is a catechist; because one “is” a catechist and all of life revolves around this mission. In fact, “being” a catechist is a vocation of service to the Church; what was received as a gift from the Lord should be transmitted in one’s turn.
