CROCKETT – The Diocese of Tyler Office of Faith Formation recently conducted a catechist training camp at St. Francis of the Tejas Church in Crockett, according to Linda Porter, the office’s director.
The camp offered new catechists training in the liturgical year, the diocese’s 16 catechetical goals, an overview of how to use the curriculum guide and a general pep talk in how rewarding it is to share your faith with others.
The attendees made liturgical calendars for their catechetical sessions, cross checked text books from the library with the 16 goals for competency.
Porter also modeled a lesson on the Trinity for adults so they can see what the pedagogy for teaching looks like.
