Ongoing Formation Through the Catechetical Institute

Week 1: Introduction to the Catechetical Institute.  Here Bill Keimig explains the history and background experience that led to the creation of the Institute.   It’s long, but the end wraps it up nicely!

The Institute wants to help local communities develop ongoing formation at all levels and ages. Part of this ongoing formation is ongoing conversion. Spiritual formation is our first priority. The goal for every catechist is to “become what you teach” — to become a witness. The person of the catechist — not their skill or the program they run — is what makes for effective catechesis.
