Our office recommends a Catechist formation series called: "Echoes of Faith Plus". It is the most widely used catechist/teacher formation program in North America. Echoes of Faith Plus includes 13 videos that demonstrate effective catechetical approaches, methodology, and theology. Companion booklets provide the learning design for each participant and include valuable resources, reflection questions, articles, and prayers. Over 60 renowned specialists in catechetics and theology brought their knowledge, expertise, and skills to the Echoes of Faith Plus project.
Echoes of Faith Plus is the best, most complete, convenient, and affordable formation program available today. Echoes Plus, a project of the National Conference of Catechetical Leadership produced by RCL Benziger, is the most complete and widely used catechist formation resource ever developed.
