The Leader’s Manual is closely connected to the material in the Candidate’s Handbook. It provides several how-to-use tips for catechists and other adult leaders to share the lessons with either large or small groups and in a variety of time-frames and settings. Each chapter begins with a theological overview and adaptable schedules for one, two, or three sessions of varied duration per month. Suggested activities include role-plays, panel discussions, guest presentations, and film offerings.
