between the liturgical, catechetical, and pastoral aspects of the process.
"Parts and Wholes"

"Conversion in Christ"
At the heart of catechesis is the person of Jesus Christ. This workshop explains how to connect every doctrine to the deepest longings of the human heart, which can only be satisfied by Jesus himself. Following the pedagogy of God, every catechesis must be a pressing invitation to a deepening of faith, hope and charity.
