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.

Sale 70% off

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.

REVISIONING THE PARISH PASTORAL COUNCIL

Sale 70% off

Parish pastoral councils are organized groups of Catholic clergy and lay people together who have the function of guiding the pastoral life of the community. with the 1983 Code of Canon Law mandating the establishment of pastoral councils in every Catholic parish, and the realization by clergy that they needed the help of laypersons in parish management, parish councils became a fact of life of the church.

Experienced pastoral leaders Mary Ann Gubish and Susan Jenny have put together here a practical workbook for all persons involved in developing pastoral councils on a parish level. This workbook takes participating laypersons and clergy through several steps involving common prayer, the development of a mission statement, developing a pastoral plan and discerning leadership in the community. The step-by-step process is augmented with background information about tasks that may be unfamiliar to laity, e.g., what is a pastoral plan? What should a mission statement do? How do parishes relate to dioceses: How do we reach consensus in decision-making?
