Celebrating "The Ministry of the Catechist"
From the very beginnings of the Church catechists have taught the faith and strengthened and enriched the lives of the people of God. Now, with Pope Francis’ apostolic letter Antiquum Ministerium, the ministry of catechist has been established as a formal, instituted lay ministry in the Church. The pope’s apostolic letter is brimming with history, theology, catechetics, affirmation, and challenge for today’s catechists. And in this booklet, renowned catechist Janet Schaeffler, OP, helps us reflect on the pope’s message and bring it to prayer, so that it might enrich and strengthen our own catechetical ministry to the people of God.
