What's Happening


September 2, 2021, Detroit – In her latest book, Sister Janet Schaeffler, OP, reflects on Antiquum Ministerium, an apostolic letter by Pope Francis that establishes the ministry of catechists – religious education teachers – as a formal lay ministry within the Catholic Church. Celebrating “The Ministry of the Catechist” explores this papal letter, which both challenges and affirms the ministry of the catechist. 

Celebrating “The Ministry of the Catechist” is available through Twenty-third Publications or can be ordered through the Weber Center Shop at 517-266-4035 or webershop@adriandominicans.org. The shop is currently closed for personal shopping due to COVID-19 protocols. 

An Adrian Dominican Sister, Sister Janet served as Director of Adult Faith Formation for the Archdiocese of Detroit and now offers workshops and writes about religious education and faith formation. Among the hundreds of books she has written are annual Advent reflection booklets.
