Evangelization & Catechesis

Remember the Baltimore Catechism? Maybe some wonder what a Baltimore Catechism is? We can agree that many things have changed, especially when it comes to the way we learn about our Faith. Change can be a good thing. Although sometimes difficult, we plan to with your help, bring change with the Office of Evangelization and Catechesis.

Consider the name “Evangelization and Catechesis.” It is not just a name with the same Faith Formation hints that we have sent on a new mission. In a nutshell, Evangelization means, sharing with others the good news of salvation, brought about by the passion death, resurrection, and ascension of the Lord Jesus Christ. Catechesis means, handing down other parts of our Faith, which leads us to a better understanding, celebration, life, and prayerful relationship with God. Would you like your life to be filled with more love, faith and grace? There will be many opportunities, stay tuned…
