Maroh 8,i 991  TheMessage 4or tholicsfoutltwestern4adiana I I The following feature article is one in a monthly series about catechists in the Diocese of Evansville. Information and quotations for this article were provided by Sherin Allen, President of the Education Commission at Holy Cross Church, Fort Branch. Robin Angermeier is "nice," according to five-year-old Megan Odom. "She gives us papers to do and reads stories to us," the Holy Cross pre- schooler explained. "She never gets mad or yells at us. We are learning how to read and cut nice.,, '-'I am always impressed by the creativity and imagination that Robin brings to a pro- gram," said Ann Georges, DRE. t'She has genuine joy and en- husiasm that are reflected in jhe response of the children With whom she is involved. Robin is a true witness of the joyful Jesus to our children." Her "warm and gentle per- r Jill Ann White Admlnletrator -L Hwy. 57 So, Washington, IN '"' 812-2544516 /=l Prairie Village III Living Center Robin Angermeier Catechist giving back to Chttrch what she has received sonality' makes it possible for her to share her faith not only with her family but with her ex- tended family of Holy Cross, said Father Philip Kreilein, pastor. "She is always willing to ex- plore and try new ideas," said Father Kreilein, and she "suc- cessfully guides her students to a new understanding of God and faith." "She is quite an asset to have in a religious education program," the pastor concluded. Angermeier, 33, is a speech/language pathologist for the South Gibson School Cor- poration. She and her husband Don have three children, Katie Linn, Alex Reed and Neil Bradley. The family iN'es near Owensville. "I have tried to contribute time and ideas to Holy Cross Parish since my conversion," wrote Angermeier. Since she joined the parish in 1977, she has been active on the Com- munity Affairs Commission and the Education Commission. She taught in the high school religious education program and worked' with the SPRED program. Angermeier taught in Holy Cross' Vacation Bible School for six years before becoming the coordinator four years ago. About 70 adult volunteers and 150 to 200 students are involv- ed each year. Angermeier has also coor- dinated the pre-school religious education program for five- year-olds for the past five years. "We have revamped 'this kindergarten CCD program to be a transition between the 4-year-old Sunday School Pro- gram and the first grade religion classes and Mass atten- dance at Holy Cross," Angermeier commented. "We try to teach the gospel message in a special children's Liturgy of the Word," and "ex- plain how God's messages af- fect our lives." After hearing an explanation of the Mass and getting answers to their ques- tions, the students join the whole congregation for the Liturgy of the Eucharist, she said. "I believe that in working as a catechist I can fullfill a responsibility to give back to the church some of what I have received," said Angermeier in an interview with the parish DRE. "Sharing and witnessing our love of Jesus to children allows them to see our faith and helps their faith to grow as well," she said. Her Christian involvement goes back to her days as a youth. "I come from a protestant background and during my pre- teen and early teen years I was very involved in summer church camps and weekly bible studies," Angermeier said. "I know what a deep influence this has had on my life and hope that I am able to share this influence with the young peo- ple in our parish."
