Nothing can replace the person of the catechist, whether in elementary grades, in youth ministry, in the RCIA, or in any other level of adult formation. The catechist him or herself leads the believer to both understand more and develop greater intimacy with Christ. This role -- an ancient one in the Church -- is one for which people MUST BE PREPARED.
Here at Twenty-Third Publications, we take this very seriously and we provide a powerful, inexpensive, and effective resource: INTO THE FIELDS. See below for more details.
