The post I put up the other day about designating catechists for Men’s and Women’s clubs in parishes struck a positive chord with lots of people. In particular, a comment posted by Maureen summed up precisely what I was aiming at when she said that the idea:
…also speaks to one of the foundational principles of the USCCB pastoral plan for Adult Faith Formation, “Our Hearts Were Burning Within Us”: parish life itself is the curriculum.
If indeed, the parish is the curriculum for adult faith formation, we need to look closely at parish life and identify opportunities for adult faith formation. I began with Men’s and Women’s clubs.
What other parish organizations/groups/activities could benefit from having a designated catechist?
