The mission of the Office of Catechesis is to echo the life, words, and teachings of Jesus Christ. Our focus, under the direction of the Bishop, is to serve as advocates for the catechetical needs of all people. We accomplish our ministry by providing guidance and support to the faith formation of the Diocese.
The Office of Catechesis envisions a diocesan community reflecting the light of Christ in today's world. By answering our call to live the Beatitudes, our community engages their Baptismal vocation through lifelong evangelizing catechesis calling all to embrace the unconditional love of God.
“…the definitive aim of catechesis is to put people not only in touch but in communion, in intimacy, with Jesus Christ: only He can lead us to love of the Father in the Spirit and make us share in the life of the Holy Trinity.” - Catechesi Tradendae, 5
