Pastor Weedon,
Thank you for posting your catechesis schedule. It looks like an outline taken directly from the Catechism! Is that syllabus your own creation? Or does it follow a separate resource that you use? I currently use the Catechism as my resource, but am open to others that will guide that discussion. Your answer to those questions will be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

It is a study of the Catechism that I developed some years ago, based on some work a friend of mine had done. I have it all as a word doc, if you're interested.

Very interested, thank you. Would you like to send it via email? Revcaithamer@hotmail.com is it if you would like. I am impressed that you are able to get so much covered in what appears to be so little time. Then again, from what I read in your blog, your visitors and members alike receive a rich supply of information and teaching constantly. They are much farther along than my visitors and parishioners! Thank you again.
