Annual Diocesan Leadership Day

This year's Leadership Day facilitator is Dr. Michael "Mike" Carotta: Dr. Carotta will introduce us to his book Teaching for Discipleship in which he points out why now is the right time to emphasize the call of discipleship, the challeges involved in making "necessary adaptations", catechetical dynamics that distinguis Teaching for Discipleship from our past approavhes, and practices that can help all of us keep heart.
Dr. Carotta is a long-time catechist, who has also served as Diocesan Director of Adolescent Catechesis, Exectuive Director of the NCEA Department of Religious Education, and as a member of the Bishops' COmmittee for the Revision of the General Catechetical Directory.
