Parents as Catechists

Even if your parish is doing a good job, it’s still mainly your job!  And no, I am not above offering cash prizes to kids who memorize things.

Here are some of the books I recommended in my post.  As always, if you want to buy any of these books through Amazon, I would be most grateful if you would do it through these links!  I get a small percentage of each sale, which makes a huge difference in keeping our family afloat, especially during Birthday $ea$on.  (If you get to Amazon through one of these links and buy something else besides what I recommended, I still get credit for that purchase.)  Thank you!
