As you prepare to start the new school year we would like to support you and your teachers. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever, but the spaces in which we share that Good News look quite different. This 45 minute webinar will examine essential considerations and practical suggestions for engaging children and families in a digital religion program. We will explore how to get organized, set expectations, and create a welcoming online environment where the love of Jesus is proclaimed.

In each session of this two-part workshop, we will look at five principles that will guide parish ministries according to the Church’s mission to bring people into communion with Christ. This will not be an exhaustive list by any means, but will provide ten solid principles that can guide our work to be fruitful and faithful. Our goal is to think with the heart and mind of the Church in accomplishing her mission.
This is a two-part workshop for parish and diocesan DRE’s and catechetical leaders. We will meet both days for about an hour and half with as much time as need for questions, answers, and comments.
We will be offering this two-part workshop at two different times. The cost of this workshop is $20 and you will receive the workbook at the beginning of the workshop.
- Tuesday, July 14 and Thursday, July 16 at 10am CST
- Tuesday, July 14 and Thursday, July 16 at 6:30pm CST
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about attending the workshop. Feel free to contact us if you have questions at email@example.com.
