ABOUT THE MARATHON
By watching the six short videos in this marathon, you will become a better catechumenate minister.
- You will enhance your skills for leading mystagogical catechesis
- You will gain more confidence in preparing catechumens for the rites
- And you will experience a deeper spiritual connection with your catechumens
- As a result, you’ll find yourself experiencing less stress and more joy in your ministry
Starting on July 17, the videos will appear one per day for six days. Come back every day that week to watch the newest video.
You can watch past videos during the free week if you miss one. But be sure to watch them all before July 23.
After that, they will be gone! (Well, not gone, gone. You can still purchase a parish license after the free week.)

The marathon is bite-sized, easily understandable. You can watch the video at your own pace, stop the video to make notes, and think or reflect, rewind, resume and fast forward. It is most so much easier to retain.Desi Ortiz, St. Bernard Church-Bellflower CA
