“The catechesis of infants and young children nourishes the beginnings of the life of faith. The most important task of the catechesis of children is to provide, through the witness of adults, an environment in which young people can grow in faith” (NDC 48). Parents, through their own experience and practice of faith, are the primary catechists in their child’s life of faith which begins within the family. “Catechetical programs for children…seek to foster their growth in a wider faith community” (NDC 48).
We provide training, resourcing, and support for parish catechetical programs, Sacramental preparation, safe environment awareness, and summer programs for children.
