“The object of catechesis is communion with Jesus Christ.” (NDC, p.55)
Catechesis is a lifelong process that aims to make the faith of each individual real, meaningful, and alive through instruction, community experience, prayer and social action. Religious education, integral to the catechetical process, proclaims and teaches God’s Word and our faith tradition in order that faith might be enlivened and nurtured. These curriculum guidelines are intended to give direction, unity, consistency and credibility for religious education in the diocese of Evansville. They are designed for lifelong catechesis, early childhood through adulthood.
