At the core of catechesis is the art of transmitting Christian doctrine. The first part of this course reviews of the historical development of catechesis within the Church and identifies key principles in the ministry of catechesis. The second part introduces students to the fundamental catechetical documents that shape our understanding of parish catechesis for children, adolescents and adults. The course concludes with an study of catechesis within the context of Christian Initiation, with references to the practice of the ancient catechumenate.
