Office for Evangelization and Catechetical Ministry

EVANGELIZATION means proclaiming the Good News of new life in Christ. Its purpose is personal encounter with Jesus and conversion toward UNITY in COMMUNION and MISSION.

CATECHESIS builds on evangelization and is always situated within the context of evangelization. Its two-fold objective is to bring initial faith to maturity and to form true disciples of Christ through a deeper and more systematic knowledge of the person and message of Jesus. (cf. Catechesi tradendae, 19).
