This episode is a little different. Instead of an interview it features a talk given by Fr. Andrew Carl Wisdom, O.P., to a group of DREs last year. In it he talks about some of the fears shared by the parents he talks to as their sons discern a vocation to the priesthood.
In just the short time since the Catechetical Leader podcast started there have been tremendous technology innovations that will effect the way we do catechesis in the future. From increased adoption of e-readers to the introduction of the iPad to the ever-expanding reach of broadband access, the Church will have to decided when and how to use these technologies to pass on the faith to a generation that doesn’t know any other way to process information.
This month we talk to a catechist at the forefront of these conversations: Sr. Caroline Cerveny, SSJ, is the founder of InterActive Connections, a faith-based educational technology ministry, and Digital Catechesis, a social networking site for technology-based catechists.
Be sure to leave a comment and let us know what you think about the increasing importance of technology in the catechetical mission of the Church!
In this month’s show we ask the question: what will faith formation in our parishes look like in 2020, just 10 years from now? What are the forces shaping religious education and what are some possible scenarios for the future?
