"A picture speaks a thousand words.”
As teachers and catechists we often make use of pictures and images to portray our message. In this section of our website we have started a collection of images that could be used in teaching and catechesis in many ways.
We have organised our images in two sections – RELIGIOUS and OTHER. The table below shows the themes in each section.
Any image could be downloaded for use as a resource, whether printed, as an image for a PowerPoint presentation or any other similar use. (Images are less than 500 KB in size but this could also be adjusted as needed if a smaller size or lower resolution is required. Click on any theme below and it will take you to a picture gallery; click on the picture you want to see it full-size, then right click and choose 'save target as' to download on your computer.)
We hope to add more images in the near future.
