CPM-Sacramental Catechesis - John Paul II - 1/8, 1/15, 1/22, 1/29, 2/5, 2/12 extra wk for snow

Tuesday, January 8, 2019 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Location(s): John Paul II High School


The seven sacraments are “efficacious signs of grace, instituted by Christ and entrusted to the Church”. (CCC, 1131)  The course distinguishes the types of preparation needed for sacramental preparation: initiatory catechesis for baptism, confirmation and Eucharist; and ongoing catechesis for penance, anointing of the sick, marriage and holy orders.   Focus of the course will be the intimate connection of the initiatory sacraments and penance as well as skills for liturgies that reflect this connection.


By the end of the course students will be able to:

  1. Explain the general principles for sacramental catechesis (as given in the National Directory for Catechesis, 35.B)
  2. Understand that initiatory catechesis incorporates those preparing for initiation sacraments into a Christian community that knows, lives, celebrates and bears witness to the faith.
  3. Recognize liturgy in all its forms as instructive and formational.
  4. Understand the purpose and tasks associated with meaningful sacramental liturgies.
