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 initiating the hearers into the fullness of Christian life. (CCC 5, CT 18)

What does the term “Catechesis” mean?

“Catechesis means to reecho what Christ has taught. Catechesis, therefore, is the handing on of Jesus’ teaching which was given to the apostles (the Deposit of Faith) and transmitted through Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition. The Catechism of the Catholic Church outlines this teaching in an authentic manner and is therefore a “sure norm for teaching the faith” (Pope John Paul II, Fidei Depositum 3).
