A Handbook for Catechesis
Handbook for Catechists
covers the essential skills, knowledge and understanding you need to become an
inspiring and effective catechist.
Each chapter includes a
broad look at some important dimensions of the vocation, including what
catechesis is, its purpose and how catechesis helps the faithful to live a life
of discipleship – following in the footsteps of Christ.
It features an invaluable
collection of catechetical tips, techniques, methodologies, and advice.
The various reflection
questions will help the reader to prayerfully reflect upon what they have
learnt and to integrate the lessons into their own teaching sessions – whether
preparing children for the sacraments or adults for reception into the Church
through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA).
This book is an
indispensable resource for anyone who has a role in handing on the faith to
others. It will spur a new appreciation of the opportunities and challenges of
catechesis in the Church today.
