The first tutorial is Getting Started
To get an idea of the type of presentation that can be created using Prezi, come and visit Prezi Demo.

What are some thoughts and ideas for using this tool in your ministry or Catechetics? Of course, this is an alternative to PowerPoint. So, anything you can do with PowerPoint, you can do with Prezi.
Before you get over exciting about using Prezi, you may want to pay attention to what others say about this tool. For example:
Prezi is the Coolest Online Presentation Tool I’ve Seen by Robin Wauters, and
The Emerging Technologies Librarian, PF Anderson, posts Pondering Prezi.
I’ve not used this tool yet. However, I’ve listened to presenters who have used the tool during their presentation. What I’ve observed, is that you need to remember that some in your audience may react like PF Anderson. For me, this means you really need to understand the tool and have experimented with this tool before you actually use it. My guess – there is an “art” to using this tool so that it engages the viewer instead of making them dizzy.
So, if you are looking for a unique way to do a presentation, this may be the tool.
