The Role of the Catechist

The Role of the Catechist

NEW One of the first questions any new catechist asks is, “What’s my role?” In 2005 the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops published the National Directory for Catecheses to help answer that question by outlining six important tasks for the catechists. So in this helpful book about the catechist’s role, the chapters highlight those tasks. The reader is encouraged to reflect on each task and to dialogue with other catechists about the contents of the book. Each chapter is written by a leader or practitioner in the catechetical field who is or has been engaged in catechist formation.
