OTG: The Catholic Navigator: Bon Voyage!
If you are actively involved in catechesis in your parish, or in other formation programs, you may be interested in subscribing to the Catholic Navigator. This is a lay apostolate of experienced catechists which provides printable weekly catechetical supplements for adults and children.
The organization’s “flagship” is the “Catholic Navigator” supplement for adults, which consists of a single double-sided hand-out providing “information and reflection associated with the seasons, events and persons memorialized in the liturgical year.” A second catechetical supplement, the “Catholic Tugboat”, is designed for children aged nine to eleven. You’ll find links to sample issues of each at the bottom of the home page.
The Catholic Navigator team explores the riches of the Catholic faith in fidelity to the Magisterium of the Church. Their handouts draw heavily from resources highlighted by the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, and they consistently reference the Catechism of the Catholic Church. All of their publications bear the imprimatur of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.
Costs are minimized by providing these supplements as high-quality PDF files which can be printed on a single two-sided sheet of paper—ideal for handing out in formation groups and CCD classes, or as inserts for the weekly church bulletin. The printable supplements are sent out four or five at a time, about two weeks in advance of when the first in each batch will be used.
Pricing starts at $100 for 52 weeks, but an entire parish can be served for a year with handouts of both supplements for $300. Negotiated pricing is available for special purposes and needs.
