Towards an Evangelising Catechesis: Reflections on the new Directory for Catechesis


In the midst of our experience of the Covid-19 pandemic the Pontifical Council for Promoting the New Evangelisation issued a new Directory for Catechesis. At a first glance this is a very long document which will take some time to digest as we continue to move into what we are all calling the ‘new normal’ of Church life.
