Testimonials

“The curriculum for encouraging students to understand that they are a wonderful gift and should treat themselves as such is a breath of fresh air in this harsh world of self-ridicule and body shaming.”

Teacher After Online Formation/Training

“Thank you for such a beautiful and enriching training. So many graces. I feel like I received a huge gift that I am just beginning to unwrap. I am very grateful for the knowledge, wisdom and practical examples/tips to help me grow as I learn to hand on to my students and share with others what I have received.”

Teacher After Online Formation /Training with Katrina Zeno

Best part…”For me it was the way Katrina simplified the teaching for catechists who are not professional teachers. I also appreciated the way she encouraged everyone.  She also gave the reasons why these teachings are so important in this time in salvation history. For example why certain components are so essential for this age group now in regard to what they are receiving from the world and where they are developmentally. She is a gift!”

I will be sharing what I have learned with my catechists so they can reinforce these amazing teachings of St. John Paul II and the Catholic Church!”

“You are really onto something with these recorded workshops. It’s a very cost effective as well as convenient way to train catechists to teach this and it helps give the catechists the needed confidence and encouragement. Well done!”

“This has been a very informative workshop. In this day & age where the sanctity of marriage is being attacked, it is refreshing to have a curriculum being offered that is faithful to Catholic teaching.”

Mark Dvornak, K-8 Teacher, Immaculate Heart of Mary, NKY After In-Person Staff Training

“Everyone who is teaching faith formation should take this course. In fact, I think the 6th grade level is a great place to start. I know that TOB is what our culture needs (it’s what it really needed a generation ago) but this course has really reinforced the need for everyone to hear this message, regardless of their age. I now have a better concept of what it means to be made in the image of God and the hierarchy of created things; I also understand how this is foundational to understanding every relationship we, as humans, have.”
