Be An Amazing Catechist – A Tiber River Review

Be an Amazing Catechist

Lisa Mladinich's Be An Amazing Catechist reads like a Catechesis 101 magazine. Packed with practical suggestions, resources to investigate, and advice drawing upon her classroom experience, this would be a terrific resource for giving to teachers at the beginning of the year or for reflection at any point in their vocation. Lisa writes with humor and assures us:

What this book is not, is the esoteric product of a highly educated, highly trained expert. Based on several years of my own classroom experience and my own and others' reserach, it is more like a field guide – written by one of your own in language you can relate to.
Her tone remains similarly light throughout the booklet, while touching on real-world challenges like determining age-appropriate materials for your students, ways to encourage parent involvement, and classroom discipline. Mladinich emphasizes both children's different learning styles and our own unique approaches to catechesis. Reading this can help you to evaluate where your own strengths lie and encourage you to try new approaches with your students.


  1. Please let me know when the The Parish Book of Chant is available. Thank you.

  2. This sounds like a “must have” for catechists and religious education teachers! Examples from real, in the classroom experiences are a real help to those of us in the trenches!
    As an 8th grade catechist for the past 5 years, I am glad to have all the help and guidance in handling the classroom and involving parents as I can get!
    Thanks for this. I plan to make use of it in the upcoming RE year!
