Useful tips for being a successful catechist.
Wish lists aren’t just for Christmas. There are many items that we would like to have for our religious education program but can’t afford. There are many times that catechists spend their own money to buy supplies such as books, music CDs, videos, etc. Why not have your DRE create a “Wish List”. Catechists can write items on as they think of things or the need arises.
The DRE can talk with the pastor to see if it is possible to put a few items and their cost in the bulletin a couple times a year. You will be surprised how many people will donate money if they know a specific need. When a donation is received, make sure a “thank you” is posted in the bulletin.
