Catechesis is a responsibility of the entire Christian community. This is should not be the work of catechists and priests alone, but of the whole community of the faithful. The Christian community follows the development of catechetical processes, for children, young people and adults, as a duty that involves and binds it directly. (GDC 220) A fully Christian community can exist only when a systematic catechesis of all its members takes place and when an effective and well developed catechesis of adults is regarded as the central task of the catechetical enterprise.” (ACCC, no. 25).
The Faith Institute provides classes for confirmed high school teens thru adults in a new Continuing Education Program. Classes will meet Monday nights and Saturdays for 6 weeks. This is not just a lecture and homework type of class. You will learn about your faith in this interesting and dynamic program.
Catechists are needed for many grades. If you are interested, please contact Mrs. Darlene Biggs at 630-365-9166 OR firstname.lastname@example.org.
