“The Spirit Comes to Enlighten the mind first of the one who receives Him, and then, through Him, the minds of others as well.” -St. Cyril of Jerusalem, Doctor of Catechesis
“The Church exists to evangelize. Evangelization expresses the Church’s identity and completes the mission entrusted to her by her founder, Jesus Christ. Catechesis is a significant moment in the process of evangelization. Through comprehensive, systematic instruction, and initiation into the life of the community through the Liturgy, sacraments, and service, catechesis deepens and strengthens the believer as a member of the Body of Christ, the Church.” (National Directory of Catechesis, Ch. 2)
