Cornerstone 1: Build a firm foundation

Many of us came into catechumenate ministry with very little training. We’ve learned a lot, but sometimes our learning has been haphazard. Or it has come loose from its foundation in the vision of the Second Vatican Council.

And even if the way we facilitate the catechumenate is firmly planted in the principles of the Council, we might not be able to clearly say how or recognize how what we do fits with the entire picture of the work of our Christian communities.

We don’t need to know the whole history and theology of the Council to be effective catechumenate ministers.

But there are some key foundational elements that, once we have mastered them, will

  • give us more confidence
  • help us discern the movement of the Spirit
  • and lower our stress
