The Six Tasks of Catechesis: Key Principles and Practices for Forming Faith. Glavich, Mary Kathleen. Twenty Third Publications, 2016.
When the Church describes the ministry of catechesis, it begins by talking about six tasks that are absolutely fundamental to who we are and what we are called to do. These six tasks lie behind all our textbooks and lesson plans, and all we do with those we teach. This recent book from Mary Kathleen Glavich, SND offers concrete examples for each task -- and even more -- hands-on activities to use with your class or learning group!

Saint Benedict for Boomers: Wisdom for the Next Stage of Life.
Fletcher, Christine M. Liturgical Press, 2017.
Saint Benedict for Boomers is based on the idea that no one can retire from being a Christian; we are to love God and our neighbor throughout our life. And it recognizes that aging presents us with change, loss, and death, as well as new growth and opportunities for deep gladness and peace. The Christian vocation is valid when we are healthy and strong and when we are weak and sick. Taking Saint Benedict of Nursia as a guide, Christine Fletcher insists that those in the autumn of their lives still have much to contribute to society and to those around them, even when they are ill and dependent. Benedict's wisdom is perennial, and it remains helpful to those who negotiate new challenges in living well, preserving bodily health, discerning purpose in new stages of living, deepening faith, and ultimately, facing sickness and death
