How to Thrive as a Religious Education Teacher
Catechist's Toolbox series
The Catechist’s Toolbox

Also available in Spanish

Written specifically for any catechist who is new to the job or has never had any formal training, The Catechist’s Toolbox features an invaluable collection of catechetical tips, techniques, methodologies, and advice. Throughout the book, master teacher Joe Paprocki shares the wisdom he has gleaned in two decades as a catechist, high school teacher, and religious educator. Employing the metaphor of a homeowner’s toolbox, Paprocki explains how a new catechist is like a do-it-yourself builder who needs the right collection of tools to do the job; he then explains what the tools are, what they can do, and how to use them skillfully and effectively.

In addition to the wealth of suggestions in The Catechist's Toolbox, readers can get answers to their questions about catechesis and other faith-related topics by visiting Joe’s blog, Catechist’s Journey, at
