 General Description:

Written specifically for any catechist who is new to the job or has never had any formal training, The Catechist’s Toolbox features an invaluable collection of catechetical tips, techniques, methodologies, and advice. Throughout the book, master teacher Joe Paprocki shares the wisdom he has gleaned in two decades as a catechist, high school teacher, and religious educator. Employing the metaphor of a homeowner’s toolbox, Paprocki explains how a new catechist is like a do-it-yourself builder who needs the right collection of tools to do the job; he then explains what the tools are, what they can do, and how to use them skillfully and effectively.

Joe Paprocki, D.Min., has been a catechetical leader and religious educator in the Chicago area for more than twenty years. His books include Living the Mass, The Bible Blueprint, The Catechist’s Toolbox (Loyola Press).  He is the National Consultant for Faith Formation at Loyola Press in Chicago.  Joe blogs about his work as a catechist at Catechist’s Journey.
