Catechist Magazine Blog and Facebook Page

Catechist Magazine recently embraced Web 2.0. Catechist Magazine is written for catechists, religion teachers in Catholic schools and parish religious educators. As one of the leading publications in the field of catechesis and religious education, Catechist Magazine is leading its readers into the new generation of Catholic social media. Beginning in September of 2009, the magazine has been posting resources on their blog including Daily Scripture Reflections, Lessons for the Sunday Gospel, Catechist Crafts, and ideas “From the Field.” They also created a Facebook fanpage which I recently joined as a fan.

You can find their blog at CATECHIST Community:
