Resources for Catechists

Pope francis to Catechists

Catechists have fewer hours to teach the Theology of the Body program.  Thus, you are welcome to use any or all of the PowerPoints found on the “In-Class Teaching Resources” page, but please take into account what you must teach in the lesson plan below.  Also, please consider how you will present the material over 12 hours, i.e.: two six-hour sessions, etc.  Consult the “Model Options” below.
