"In an age marked by tremendous social and cultural challenges, as well as ever-expanding digital tools which have often left the field of catechesis behind, the timing of this updated resource is providential." – Bishop Robert Barron, chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Evangelization and Catechesis
This new Directory for Catechesis represents the work of over 80 experts over 5 years, reflecting a dynamic renewal in catechesis since its predecessor, and incorporating the magisterial wisdom of the most recent episcopal Synods and Pope Francis’s apostolic exhortation Evangelii Gaudium.
The Directory reflects the most up-to-date expertise on the necessary elements of teaching and personal formation for catechetical work, and provides robust responses to the radical challenges caused by the digital dimension and globalisation of contemporary human culture.
The result is a crucial new resource for catechists, educators, and all those working in pastoral and evangelistic work, centred on the core mission and rooted in the essential life-transforming proclamation of the Church: the Gospel itself.
