Catechesis Accommodated to the Liturgical Year

One Day Workshop

The wisdom of RCIA 75.1 is that the catechumenal journey is to be a gradual process. What is catechesis in the catechumenate supposed to look like? Why and how does it need to be “accommodated to the liturgical year?” What is a “profound sense of the mystery of salvation,” and how do we instill it in the catechumens and ourselves? Catechumeneon team members will present a vision of what this extended time of formation and instruction looks like. Finally, participants will be challenged and invigorated to consider the many ways in which “catechesis both precedes the liturgy and springs from it” (National Directory for Catechesis, 33).
