Catechetics

“Furthermore, catechists are creative; they seek to use different means and forms to proclaim Christ. It is beautiful to believe in Jesus because he is “the way, and the truth, and the life” (John 14:6) who fills our existence with joy and cheerfulness. This endeavour to make Jesus known as the highest form of beauty brings us to encounter new signs and ways to transmit the faith,” Pope Francis, Message to the First International Catechetical Symposium, 5 July 2017

The responsibilities of the Office for Catechetics are as follows:

  • To develop a strategic policy in matters relating to children’s liturgy, and youth and adult faith formation, according to the vision and priorities of the Church and of the Archdiocese.
  • To form and lead the Archdiocesan Commission on Catechetics in its role of resourcing and coordinating those involved in providing and enabling youth and adult faith formation.
  • To ensure effective communication between the Commission and all those involved in catechetical work in the Archdiocese, and to provide them with support and resources.
  • To co-ordinate the Archbishop’s Youth Initiative.
