Witnesses or masters?

For decades in the post-conciliar period, people were saying that one should no longer do catechism, but experience the encounter with the Lord. The teaching of doctrine in this way was abandoned and replaced with communication of ‘our experiences’ and the ‘testimony’ of ‘credible’ people. Even in celebrations the testimonies and the homily-ray had great consideration. What do you say about this?

Catechesis to resume when schools reopen

Local churches resumed public religious services last weekend, but catechesis will only be an option once again when schools and universities reopen their classrooms. The suspension may force children and catechists to make an extra effort to make amends for the meetings that were cancelled. At the Cathedral parish, pre-catechesis attracted eight children. Enrolment in catechumenate classes fell short of expectations.

Cathedral Parish relaunches catechesis for preschool children

First in Taipa, then in Macau. The local Catholic communities are priming themselves for a new catechetical cycle. The new year begins a week apart in the two parishes. The Parish of Our Lady of Carmel, in Taipa, marks the beginning of the new catechetical year with the feast of the Holy Childhood. In the Cathedral of the Nativity of Our Lady, the new cycle will start a week later, with fewer catechists and something fresh: the rehabilitation of catechesis for preschool children.
