Restore your soul, the catechist must remain close to what they teach

Week after week

and sometimes

year after year

we teach

much the same material

even if the curriculum changes

our job is still the same

to bring the gospel

to bring the faith to the children of God

we must remain enthusiastic about what we teach

(and I’m not suggesting we need to entertain)

but we need to show our students

we genuinely believe what we teach

we genuinely care about them


we as teachers are also learners

we never know it all


it is our job

to continue our learning


through bible study(alone or in a group)

online courses

all day or weekend retreats



and finally refresh

your soul

stay awake to the presence of God in your life


you will be more able to bring God to your classroom
