Religious Education Material Evaluation and Selection

Religion textbooks play an undeniably important role in the Church’s mandate to foster a faith that is “living, conscious, and active.”  This workshop explores the purpose and best use of textbooks within catechesis, and assist participants in developing criteria for textbook selection while examining various materials currently in use for schools and parish programs.  We will also be challenging the dominance of the textbook in religion education, and the need to develop formation approaches that prioritize the person of the catechist above all: “The work of the catechist must be considered of greater importance than the selection of texts and other tools” (GCD 71).

This workshop is coming soon!
