For Catechists & Teacher-Catechists

...the careful selection of women and men called to be catechists and their initial and on-going formation are the greatest factors in assuring the quality of catechist in the parish, school and diocese. Formation will help the catechist to grow in maturity as an adult, a believer and an apostle." (General Directory for Catechesis 238)
