Each Gather In My Name event focuses on a particular seasonal theme, one developed through prayer, presentation, discussion, interaction, and print and Internet resources. The length of each event is approximately two hours, which can be shortened to suit the particular needs and interests of the parishioners. A Leader's Guide contains a step-by-step outline of the session. A handy preparation chart serves as a checklist for assembling materials and resources. Handouts and templates are provided for use before, during, and after the event.
Welcome to Gather in My Name (GIMN), an approach to whole community catechesis that works!
Seasonal events bring together people of all ages to learn about and share their faith. As part of
the We Believe program, these events come complete with detailed leader's guides, preparation charts,
handouts, promotional ideas, organization materials, and much more. Weekly faith sharing
(Question of the Week) includes activities, prayers, and discussion ideas centered on the Sunday Gospel
readings. These are usable in the home and in catechetical sessions, with committees, volunteer groups,
and the parish at large. All materials are offered FREE and are available for downloading.
