What is Catechesis?

Hear our Catechetical Director, Fr Terence Kesavan describes what is catechesis?

The name of catechesis was given to the whole of the efforts within the Church to make disciples, to help people to believe that Jesus is the Son of God… and to educate and instruct them in this life and thus build up the Body of Christ.  (Catechesi Tradendae (1979) #1) 

Launch of Catechetical Year 2023

It was an eye-opener for 600 participants who attended the launch of the catechetical year when they were told that every baptised person in the Church community is involved in the work of catechesis, and not just catechists. Held at the Catholic Archdiocesan Education Centre at Highland Road and broadcasted online on Jan 7, 2023, the annual event was organised by the Office for Catechesis (OFC).
