Introduction to Catechesis UD - 6/4, 6/11, 6/18, 6/25

Tuesday, June 4, 2019 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Location(s): St. Luke Catholic Church, University of Dallas


Instructor:  Julie Billmier

Language: English

Catechetical leaders recognize catechesis as an ecclesial activity directed by the local Bishop and official catechetical documents. Since the training of parish catechetical leaders is the most critical factor in an effective parish catechetical program, the course assumes formation in scriptural, theological, liturgical, and catechetical methodologies when focusing attention on the catechist as an integral part of the public ministry of the Church, catechetical planning and organization, educational psychology and theory, and administration.


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

  1. Identify key catechetical documents.
  2. Demonstrate an understanding of the ecclesial nature of catechesis.
  3. Be acquainted with the various diocesan departments and national organizations that support catechetical leaders.
  4. Understand the vocation and responsibilities of the catechist.
