Sacramental Catechesis

 
Sacramental Catechesis: An Online Resource for Dioceses and Eparchies
A statement by the Committee on Evangelization and Catechesis


The Seven Sacraments continue the saving work of Jesus until he comes again and form the center of the celebration of the Christian mystery. Through the ministry of the Church, all are invited to hear the Good News, follow Christ and share in these saving mysteries: mysteries that symbolize, make possible, realize and nurture the grace of the sacraments in the baptized.

Participation in the sacraments ... is foundational to sustain the faithful in union with the very life of the Trinity.Participation in the sacraments, especially the Eucharist, is not simply an option; rather, it is foundational to sustain the faithful in union with the very life of the Trinity and to strengthen them for the rigors of living their faith as committed disciples.

The Committee on Evangelization and Catechesis has developed Sacramental Catechesis: An Online Resource for Dioceses and Eparchies. It provides an overview of some of the challenges to sacramental catechesis in our culture; offers eight principles that should govern all sound catechesis; focuses on the elements for doctrinally and pastorally sound catechesis specific to each sacrament; identifies moments of opportunity when this sacramental catechesis may be particularly fruitful.
