You have seen the bumper sticker, “If you can read this, thank your teacher.”
If there are cars in heaven, the bumper sticker will read, “If you are reading this, thank your catechist.”
Bad news from the studies is that people are less than excited about “religion.” Good news is that they are eager for meaning, purpose, “spirituality” and belief.
Our catechists connect the dots: meaning, purpose, spirituality and belief are found in Jesus and His Church.
