July 22, 2021, Detroit – As a catechist or parent planning to teach the faith to children, how do you reach out to help your young students understand their lesson? What methods can you use to reach every student in your class?
Sister Janet Schaeffler, OP, noted author and speaker on religious education and faith formation, offers suggestions in her latest book, Sharing the Faith with Every Child: A Catechist’s Guide to the Many Ways We Learn. She explores nine major learning styles and offers practical suggestions on ways to engage those styles to help children grasp their faith at a deeper level.
A retreat leader and a consultant for catechists and adult faith formation leaders, Sister Janet also once served as Director of Adult Faith Formation for the Archdiocese of Detroit. She is a recipient the National Conference for Catechetical Leadership (NCCL) Distinguished Service Award.
Sister Janet has written numerous books and resources for catechists, including Spirituality for Catechists and The Creed: A Catechist’s Guide. She also writes annual Advent reflection booklets.
Sharing the Faith with Every Child is available from Twenty-third Publications or the Weber Center Shop. The Weber Center Shop is currently closed for personal shopping due to COVID-19, but can be reached at 517-266-4035 or at email@example.com.
