Children's Catechesis

Catechesis is an education in the faith for children, young people, and adults which includes especially, the teaching of Christian Doctrine imparted, generally speaking, in an organic and systematic way, with a view to imitating the hearers into the fullness of Christian life. (CCC 5, CT 18)

What does the term “Catechesis” mean?

Parents play a critical role in the Catechesis of their children.

In the Greek (Katechein) the term catechesis means to reecho what Christ has taught. Thus, catechesis is the delivery of Jesus’ teaching found in what we call the Deposit of Faith which is made up of Sacred Tradition and Sacred Scripture. The most visible form of the Deposit of Faith is found in the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Catechesis is the organic, systematic, re-echoing of Catholic Church teaching to all who will listen.
