You want to prepare and train those who hand-on faith... but how? Since its first publication in 2003, Echoes has established itself as the foremost parish catechist training resource in the United Kingdom. Used in virtually every diocese, it has also been translated into Spanish, Norwegian and Arabic.

The participants' guide - one per participant - contains 11 sessions, each with a text to read together, summary points, group activities and a prayer.

Anyone involved in handing on the faith of the Church to others. This includes: RCIA, adult education groups, sacramental preparation, children’s liturgy, scripture groups, faith-sharing communities, youth ministry

Echoes presents the key knowledge and skills needed by those who hand-on faith to others. It equips helpers and catechists to build their confidence by: providing help with basic teaching skills, giving an overview of Catholic essentials, explaining how to use the Bible and Catechism in teaching, emphasising links to worship and liturgy

The course contains 11 sessions, each lasting about one and a half hours. Every session has its own short text and worksheet, containing everything that is needed by participants. Every Group consists of an Echoes Leader (usually an ordained minister or trained catechist) together with participants.
