As the Superintendent of Schools of the Archdiocese of Dubuque we are constantly working to find resources for teachers to assist them in their important vocation. While materials to support the academic programming is abundant and excellent, finding resources for Theology and Religion can be a challenge. There are always questions about quality, ease of use and so much more for all materials. But when dealing with the spiritual formation and instruction of our youth we struggle to find what is acceptable and consistently good. As we have worked with Curriculum Resources for Catholic Educators we have discovered a website, full of quality and appropriate materials that is run by Theology teachers, for Theology teachers to make their important work less difficult. We believe it is a great resource that will strengthen the delivery of the curriculum in our schools.

We are thrilled to be part of Curriculum Resources for Catholic Educators.  Dr. Drey has created an incredibly valuable resource for teachers in Catholic schools.  Whether one teaches Theology or any other course in a Catholic school, Curriculum Resources will take infusion of Catholic principles to another level.  The strength of this website comes from the collaboration of Catholic school teachers who create and share their lessons and strategies.  The website is filled with wonderful features including forums for professional discussion and links to useful additional resources.  A true Catholic school understands that faith formation must occur in all classes and all activities.  Curriculum Resources makes that goal much more achievable!  I highly recommend that your school become part of this exciting program!

This is a tremendous resource for all teachers, not just those who teach religion/theology. In our schools, it’s important that the Catholic faith is being integrated into all subjects to demonstrate that faith transcends the religion curriculum.

As the Director of Adolescent Faith Formation in the Archdiocese of Dubuque, I have come to know how important it is to have accessible, reliable, accurate, and ready-to-go ministry ideas. Youth Ministry can be understaffed and over-burdened. Having the opportunity to refer our Coordinators of Youth Ministry to Curriculum Resources for Catholic Educators has made my job easier and gives us a chance to make all youth ministry in the Archdiocese better. The site is easy to navigate, represents a comprehensive mindset, puts parish leadership in the same conversation with school leadership, and allows all leadership to develop top-notch faith formation for the people they serve. I am grateful for this website.
