The Directory for Catechesis
This virtual study on the Directory for Catechesis was conducted live over 12 weeks in the Fall of 2020, shortly after the Directory was released. The videos below are from presentations on each of the chapters in the Directory. Each presentation was originally followed by small group reflections. The reflection questions are also provided below and can be used for both personal or group reflection.
To receive 30 minutes of catechist certification credit per presentation, submit your answers to the reflection questions via the link provided. Your answers will be reviewed and you will receive your certificate of attendance via email within 10 working days.
If there are any questions or if any needs arise, please contact our office at firstname.lastname@example.org.

How does viewing catechesis through the lens of evangelization and mission affect how we carry out this ministry?
What does catechesis as a ’laboratory for dialogue’ look like in practice?
