Catechetical Ministry


In catechesis, faith cannot be transmitted as one would transmit human knowledge in teaching. We cannot teach faith because “faith is a gift of God, a supernatural virtue infused by Him.” (CCC 153.) So then, we might ask how does catechesis transmit this supernatural knowledge? We are reminded that our faith is (to be) “communicated from one generation to another through a living and active Tradition” (Catechesi Tradendae, CT 22) 

Parish based catechesis

Primary Levels

Here at Risen Christ, parish-based catechesis begins at Level 1 (Primary 1 or 7 years old). The children will be prepared to receive the Sacraments of First Reconciliation at Level 2 and First Holy Communion at Level 3 (Primary 3). At Level 6 (Primary 6) the children will experience a 2-day retreat to mark the end of their Primary years and go on to Confirmation Levels.

Confirmation Levels

The journey towards the Sacrament of Confirmation begins at Level 7 and continues until Level 11. The 5-year Confirmation program includes service and outreach projects, retreats, parish ministry attachments, Bible sharings and building up small youth communities  among the youths in the future.
