From the very beginnings of the Church
catechists have taught the faith and
strengthened and enriched the lives of the
people of God. Now, with Pope Francis’ apostolic
letter Antiquum Ministerium
, the ministry
of catechist has been established as a formal,
instituted lay ministry in the Church.
The pope’s apostolic letter is brimming with
history, theology, catechetics, affirmation, and
challenge for today’s catechists. And in this
booklet, renowned catechist Janet Schaeffler,
OP, helps us reflect on the pope’s message and
bring it to prayer, so that it might enrich and
strengthen our own catechetical ministry to the people of God.Click here
