The Office for Evangelization and Catechesis (English Sector) recently developed a new resource on Family Catechesis. The resource provides insight into the value of family catechesis as a means to evangelization not only of children, but of adults who accompany them.

The resource includes tips for planning family catechesis, templates with sample learning activities, and links to a variety of websites that offer resources for family catechesis. In addition, the resource includes three embedded videos from dioceses that have introduced new models of family catechesis. Each video provides a unique perspective on the benefits and challenges the diocese s have experienced in their efforts to engage parents more fully in their own faith development and in the faith lives of their children.

The resource is available online (in PDF format), free of charge, from the Office for Evangelization and Catechesis (English Sector).
