Evangelizing Catechesis: The 21st Century Mandate

Ever since St. John Paul II declared that “catechesis must often concern itself not only with nourishing and teaching the faith, but also with arousing it unceasingly with the help of grace for… total adherence to Jesus Christ,” the Church has understood that evangelization and catechesis must function as two sides of the same coin.  Pope Francis has movingly developed this mandate in Evangelii Gaudium by calling for a renewal of the kerygmatic aspect of catechesis, what he calls “the way of beauty,” and the right-hearted way of seeking the good as the ideal of a life of wisdom, fulfillment, and enrichment.  How does this vision become a reality in parish life?  How do we exercise effective catechetical leadership in this moment of the Church’s life?  This workshop explores these fundamental themes.
