Last evening ProCLAYM (Professional and catechetical leaders and Youth Ministers) held their annual Catechist In-service. It includes a wonderful meal of soup, sandwiches and yummy desserts. This is followed by some kind on enrichment we believe will be helpful and encouraging to our catechists. We were thrilled to have author, New Evangelization Director or Green Bay, super awesome, energetic, Julianne Stanz, as our Keynote Speaker. She is always a delight and so full of passion, inspiration and the best stories around...
Recently she wrote a book, The Catechist's Backpack, with Joe Paprocki. Thanks to Loyola Press, the publisher, Julianne was able to join us and share some highpoints of the book with us. As part of the evening catechists received a backpack with a few things inside including a copy of the book.
