This course will provide a general overview of the nature of catechetics and the principles and methods that should govern the art of good catechesis. Students in this course will reflect upon the ways that catechetical instruction should be directed towards an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ (CT 5, 20). Using key catechetical documents and resources, this course will explore the nature, mission, and purpose of catechesis, with emphasis on biblical catechesis, development of doctrinal lesson planning, and the principles and methods that the Church has encouraged for a variety of catechetical roles. Those who successfully complete General Catechetics for the New Evangelization should be able to effectively re-echo the teachings of Jesus Christ and his Church.
This course includes written lectures and online discussion.
