What is Catechumeneon?

LTP's Catechumeneon is a collection of training and print resources focused on Christian initiation and designed to assist parishes with understanding and implementing the vision of the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults.

The naming of this initiative is inspired by an ancient Greek word used to describe the meeting place for catechumens; it is a place for prayer, study, and formation.

Rooted in the vision of the rite, Catechumeneon resources and training opportunities provide catechists and other initiation ministers the formation and tools they need to journey with catechumens as they approach the waters of rebirth.

Why are Catechumeneon resources necessary?

To draw people to the mysteries of our faith, initiation ministers need to be formed in a number of areas. They should understand the vision of the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults and the liturgical rites that are part of the process.

As they bring others to the faith, these ministers also need to be able to listen to another’s story and discern the movement of the Spirit with those they accompany.

Through these resources, initiation ministers will help people see the presence of God in their lives and become more confident as they address the issues in their ministry.
