APPRENTICED TO CHRIST

product image
$12.95

Inspired by the principle that one learns how to be a Christian by doing what Christians do, Apprenticed to Christ provides catechists with ideas and resources for the apprenticeship of catechumens, candidates, and others participating in parish religious formation. This hands-on method, the Church's preferred approach for the catechumenate, is presented in a systematic, easy-to-use format based on the Liturgy of the Word for Sunday Mass, with activities suggested for each Sunday of the three-year cycle of readings. Recommended catechetical resources including the Catechism of the Catholic Church, conciliar documents, papal encyclicals, liturgical documents, and more help to link each suggested activity with the teaching of the Catholic Church. A fresh and fruitful approach for those who work with catechumens, candidates, confirmation preparation, and both youth and adult religious formation.

BRIDGES OF FAITH PERSONAL JOURNAL

product image
$4.95

What practical items should you pack when going to a sister parish? How do you deal with your anxieties about meeting strangers who may speak another language and eat foods different from your daily diet? What are your dreams for building a bridge of faith in another part of the world?
Dennis O'Connor, a partnering pilgrim himself on many occasions, provides an insightful journal that covers everything the new and seasoned pilgrim needs to know about the sister parish experience--from the simple hygiene and handy items the pilgrim should pack to practical tips for better appreciating culture differences.
This personal journal, a companion to the partnering guidebook, "Bridges of Faith: Building a Relationship With a Sister Parish," is invaluable to members of churches, schools and other faith communities who are in a faith-based partnership and making initial and follow-up trips to a twinning partner's parish, whether in a remote corner of the United States or in a foreign land. Family and friends of pilgrims and twinning partners themselves can also use the journal to keep track of the faith-based partnership.
Stow this personal journal in your backpack and use it to record your hopes and dreams for building a bridge of faith.

GREAT EXPECTATIONS

product image
$8.95

It s no surprise that most adult Catholics remain active in their faith because they were formed by their parents. This is the kind of faith formation that lasts a lifetime! Parents are the key players. And the fact is, no one else can do this particular work of faith formation.

Study after study highlights the importance of parental example. People experience less difficulty with drug and alcohol abuse, depression and suicide, and family tension when they regularly come to church; children and teens are more likely to do well in school, stay close to their families, and experience a greater sense of wellbeing when they regularly participate in Mass and parish activities with their families.

All of this leads to the important conclusion that those who work in parish ministry as volunteers or leaders must find a way to bring parents into the learning experience of their children. They must have great expectations of those parents, expectations the parents will meet if they partner with them and coach them to form their own children.

In this book then, we will guide catechists, teachers, pastors, principals, and parish catechetical leaders to take a secondary role (as coaches), to help parents play the primary role (as teachers) in the faith formation of their children. These leaders will then learn to expect parents to take the primary role in forming their own children. The feedback they get from parents as has been witnessed so often through this coaching method will be overwhelmingly positive.

HOW TO RUN A COMMITTEE OR ORGANIZATION

$21.95

George is a member of his church men's group. He misses one meeting and gets elected -- unanimously -- as the group's president. He is a good sport and accepts. However, he does not want to follow the conventional leadership pattern, which has led to declining membership and vitality. He wants to make a difference. But where does he start? How to Run a Committee or Organization is written for the Georges (and Georgias) of the church world, who sometimes take on leadership willingly and at other times have it thrust upon them. This manual helps church leaders plan, organize, and conduct meetings more smoothly and effectively -- and make the process more spiritually rewarding for everyone involved. Checklists, action plans, and sample agendas help leaders stay on track and use committee time more productively. The guide's humorous style gently suggests that running a church committee can be fun as well as important.
