Adult Catechetical Methodologies and Learning Styles
The General Directory of Catechesis says that, “Catechesis for adults, since it deals with persons who are capable of an adherence that is fully responsible, must be considered the chief form of catechesis” (GDC 59). Is this what most adult Catholics understand? Do most parishes orient sufficient resources to this endeavor? Do the methods employed in parishes reflect the best possible principles for adult learning, which differ from methodology employed for children and adolescents? This workshop will explore techniques to evangelize, catechize, and form faith in adults most effectively, given that the principle places of adult formation are in the family and in the parish.
