The Catechism of the Catholic Church prepared following the Second Vatican Ecumenical Council opens with the following words by Pope John Paul, II: “ Guarding the deposit of faith is the mission which the Lord entrusted to His Church, and which she fulfills in every age.” He later goes on to state: “This catechism is given to them (Church’s Pastors and the Christian faithful), that it may be a sure and authentic reference text for teaching catholic doctrine and particularly for preparing local catechisms."
This is the mission carried out by the Office of Religious Education through classes and activities for God’s children of all ages. Our program exists to provide support to all on their journey of faith.
