The Being, Knowing, and Doing workshop guides catechetical leaders through six mini-inservices that can be easily replicated for use in training parish catechists. The workshop facilitator will demonstrate how to creatively engage catechists and help them discover, embrace, and proclaim their faith more effectively.

Being: Formation that helps catechists to discover their vocation and to mature as people, believers, and apostles.
Taking Your Spiritual Pulse: Help catechists pay attention to their spiritual life.
Praying as a Grown-Up: Share simple methods for enriching your catechists' own prayer life.
Knowing: Formation that helps catechists embrace their faith by acquiring sufficient knowledge of the faith they are called to proclaim.
A Little H.E.L.P.: Help catechists easily summarize the basic pillars of the Catholic faith.
Which Saint Am I?: Encourage catechists to look to the lives of the saints for guidance and inspiration.
Doing: Formation that helps catechists more effectively proclaim the message of the gospel.
The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Catechists: Show catechists how to focus on seven skills that enable effective catechesis.
Entering through Their Door but Leaving through Your Door: Teach catechists how to follow a sound catechetical process.
