The Archdiocese of Newark Catechetical Office desires to support catechists by providing them with opportunities for growth in the ministry of catechesis.
We desire to support catechists as they grow in:
their commitment to the mission God has called them to,
their understanding of the Catholic Faith,
the practical skills necessary for effective catechesis.
"The fundamental tasks of catechists are
to proclaim Christ's message,
to participate in efforts to develop community,
to lead people to worship and prayer, and to motivate them to serve others."
(National Catechetical Directory #213)
