31 Days to Becoming a Better Religious Educator

Volunteer catechists and professional religion teachers are responsible for two unique and challenging tasks: sharing (and assessing) information and the spiritual formation of their students. 31 Days to Becoming a Better Religious Educator helps busy catechists and religion teachers with both tasks and is designed for use either over consecutive days in one month, or by specific themes that encourage personal improvement in areas of discipleship, service, leadership, and overall teaching. Each of the thirty-one days includes a clear title that gives the lesson theme, a quotation from Scripture, an introduction to the exercise, step-by-step actions to take for the day, and spiritual enrichment ideas for the educator.

Free Leader’s Guide

The book comes with many supplemental resources including a leader’s guide for administrators and department chairs, many of which were featured in the webinar. Download the leader’s guide and other resources at
