The Diocese offers many catechetic paths for those, young and old, who wish to initiate or enhance their journey toward a Christian life.
Christian Initiation consists of supporting and accompanying individuals who wish to meet Jesus Christ; to better know Him and to be transformed through Him. During this initiation, we help nourish their faith by helping them to discover the essentials of Christian Faith through the values contained in the Gospel.
With reference to the General Directory for Catechesis, we propose various initiation steps that can be adapted to an individual’s personal history or situation. These initiation steps, will help individuals prepare to receive and live the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation. They will also experience the power Jesus Christ exhibits in gathering believers together within a community to celebrate their faith through prayer and praise.
Once these initiation steps are completed, each individual will be better prepared to live their faith through words and actions, following Christ and giving life to their new found profession of faith.
