|The National Directory of Catechesis tells us, “Catechesis aims to bring about in the believer an ever more mature faith in Jesus Christ, a deeper knowledge and love of his person and message, and a firm commitment to follow him. In many situations, however, catechesis must also be concerned with arousing initial faith and sustaining this gradual conversion to Jesus Christ."
The ministry of the Office of Catechesis is to promote and guide the development of catechetical leadership in the Diocese of Tucson in collaboration with other diocesan offices and departments. This is accomplished by providing and coordinating training, certification programs for catechists, resources, and leadership development for parish leaders.
