Parish Catechetical Leader (PCL) Track

This all-encompassing three-part series of workshops addresses the spiritual, catechetical, relational, and philosophical topics essential to leadership in parish catechetical programs. Whether a catechetical leader is tasked with ministry to adults, teens, children, or all three, the workshops in this track cover vital administrative skills, including recruitment and training of catechists, planning and evaluation of curriculum and programs, and managing pastoral and parental relationships. Additionally, this track addresses areas such as evangelization and its link to catechesis, catechetical program organization and assessment, working with people with diverse cultural backgrounds, serving those with special needs, and fostering the vocational discernment and spiritual formation of others.

We recommend to take these courses in the order they appear, although it is not required to do so.
