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
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 and First Holy Communion at Level 3 (Primary 3). At Level 6 (Primary 6) the children will experience a 1-day retreat to mark the end of their Primary years and go on to Confirmation Levels.
The journey towards the Sacrament of Confirmation begins at Level 7 and continues until Level 9. The 3-year Confirmation program includes service and outreach projects, retreats and possible ministry attachments in the future.
If you have a child from Primary 3 to Secondary 1 (9-13 years old) and who:
Is baptised but never had formal catechesis and wishes to start,
Comes from overseas with no formal catechesis,
Is unbaptised and wishes to be baptised and will join catechesis thereafter
you may consider placing your child in the OFC Bridging Program.

The pedagogy of faith extends beyond transmission of knowledge - it calls for a conversion of the heart with the help of grace, so that we live a fully mature Christian life. Are you willing to:
accompany and journey with our young persons on their faith formation?
share your love for Scripture and the teachings of our Catholic faith with our young persons?
be open to on-going training in faith formation for children and youth catehesis?
