Sr. M. Johanna Paruch, FSGM, Ph.D. came to give a presentation on Catechetics to the Religion Department.  She is an Associate Professor of Catechetics at Franciscan University in Stubenville.  Her presentation focused on how to make our religion classes more than just a quality experience of academic theology and include more pastoral elements.  She discussed ways to plan lessons that included an emphasis on conversion and encountering Christ through faith in a personal way.
