  1. I have grown so much as a Christian by being a catechist just as you describe so well. “I don’t know” is always available for us and wow, do we learn when we prepare and teach and answer those questions. The question I needed to take that pause on was “Does God love the devil?” Being a catechist is truly my vocation…I have found. But it wasn’t something I sought when I started many years ago. This year I will have 5 classes in 2 parishes (all 2nd-grade, preparation for First Penance and First Holy Communion–I stay in one grade as you describe). I wish more parents would step forward to be catechists. Most of the catechists in both parishes are much like me: long-time catechist with grown children. I would love to see more young parents join in. Thumbs up for and (Jared Dees). They are both beyond awesome.
