Catechesis In Catholic Schools
Catholic education is an expression of the mission entrusted by Jesus to the Church. Through education, the Church seeks to prepare children and their families to proclaim the Good News, and to translate this proclamation into action. Our Catholic schools afford an opportunity to realize the threefold purpose of Christian education among young people – message, community, and service. The Catechetical Office is committed to the promotion, preservation, and growth of all Catholic schools in the Archdiocese, whether parochial, private, religious community-owned, or regional. We strive to develop programs of excellence that convey the message of Christ and prepare students for a life in faith. The Catechetical Office provides numerous initiatives to help strengthen staff and faculty in their understanding of catechesis while equipping them with methods to help enliven the school’s Catholic identity.
