For about 6-7 years now I have in cooperated with teaching catechism. I started out has a kindergarten helper for 4 years and then in that fourth year I was backup teacher. So I only taught kindergarten twice. I remember the one time I taught It was the week for baptism, so I showed the kids what baptism is by baptizing a doll. Not for real though. Real enough for the kids.
This is my second year having the pleasure to teach the sacramental preparation for First Eucharist and first penance. This is a great and happy opprotuity for me, because I love being able to plant the seeds of Catholic knowledge. It gives me the challenge of putting what I know, and the book and transform it into an easier way to understand.
So how does this fit into my theme? Well, Catechism gives me a chance to practice my Faith and to share it to others. It gives me joy to be able to help children on their journey of Faith to finding Jesus. That is the essential Job of a priest, is to help people and to help them find and receive Jesus.
Have a good day!
