I will call you by your name
and you are mine....

Bishops, Priests, Deacons, Catechists are, at different levels of authority, the people mandated by the Church to teach the faith. We are Catechists. This is the proper ecclesial title for what we do and what we aspire to do more effectively. The Church has recognised our qualification and through the Bishop of our Diocese has authorised us to be Catechists.

“We are Catechists. ”​

Every time we use the words Our Lady’s Catechists we are proclaiming to others and reminding ourselves that we are members of that section of the Church’s teaching ministry and speaking not for ourselves but for the Church.

Significance of our Logo: Mary, Seat of Wisdom. Mary is the Seat or Throne on which Jesus stands. Her body, her hands hold Him up to all people, whom He blesses while His sceptre shows that He is the King and the world is His Kingdom.

Mary by her YES was the instrument of the salvation of the world.

Elementary Catechism

This is a unique product with powerful arguments related to restoring lawful government. It is appropriate for children of all ages. Even grown attorneys and judges can understand it. This is rich food for productive thought about self government and Liberty. We have received many accolades for the 1993 version and now have worked to improve it and make it even more accessible. It is also supplemented by our extensive free web content.

Catechesis & Catechist

Catechesis, catechist, catechumen are words that have become associated more with Roman Catholics although they are words from the Greek, meaning 'to instruct'. A Catechist is more than an instructor. A Catechist, in addition to passing on information about God in Christianity, tried to help the one being catechised grow in an ever closer relationship with Jesus Christ. To do this well a Catechist needs not only simple piety but a deep faith in Christ

Catholicism Made Simple

The course has been prepared to help people who want to know more about the Catholic Faith, but who feel they do not know enough even to make a start. This course is studied at home, at your own page, with the friendship and support of a tutor. Each Chapter as a worksheet for you to fill in and send off to the tutor assigned to you. You will be able to ask questions to your tutor about anything you feel you do not understand. You could also talk to your local priest

Master Catechists are people of faith...

Christianity is not a philosophy of life or a collection of ethical principles. Christianity is a relationship of love with a divine Person, Jesus.

 

That means that religious education can never only be about learning “facts.” It is about growing in our love for Jesus and our belief that he shows us God’s loving design — for our lives and for our world.
