Original Design Jade Novak And the generous donations and support from Tom and Patti Franz, Steve Bernier, The Koch Foundation, The Murray Foundation, Gary Sauerman of the Shepherd’s Closet, and hundreds of catechists, past and present who have contributed financially and prayerfully to help the dream become reality.
A sketch here, a photograph there, the Level III materials descriptions were shared for so many years from catechist to catechist before they ended up as part of the fabulous online manual.
A thank you to the many dedicated and generous Level III catechists who contributed along the way. So many have given so much so we can continue to give this work to the children.
