"All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for refutation, for correction, and for training in righteousness, so that one who belongs to God may be competent, equipped for every good work." - 2 Timothy 3: 16-17

What is Catechetical Ministry (CM)?

Catechetical ministry is an important way for the Catholic church to carry out its mission of evangelization. “Catechesis is the act of handing on the Word of God intended to inform the faith community and candidates for initiation into the Church about the teachings of Christ, transmitted by the Apostles to the Church.

Catechesis also involves the lifelong effort of forming people into witnesses to Christ and opening their hearts to the spiritual transformation given by the Holy Spirit. ” (usccb.org) We teach and inform the community and those new to the faith about Christ’s teachings. A catechism, or written work that summarizes our catholic beliefs is used as a tool for teaching.
