Also, we are looking for session design details/notes for topics such as:

  • Talks to Teenagers
  • Talks to Parents: in general, sacramental presentations, etc
  • Adult education talks, courses or seminars (on various topics)
    • e.g. How Catholics Read the Bible
  • Sacramental Prep talks
  • Confirmation Retreats
  • Parish Lenten Retreats
  • RCIA, specifically Confirmation Preparation for Adults

If you have any documents or resources that you think would be valuable to the Community, please send them to one of the Leadership Team members.
