In this FREE Masterclass moderated by Deacon Matt Halbach, Dr. Petroc Willey shares practical guidance on how to prepare catechetical sessions that are both evangelizing and kerygmatic, focusing on effective methods for conveying the message of the Good News in catechetical teaching.

AGENDA

CLASS 1—Preparing an Evangelizing Catechesis
February 27, 2024 at 4 p.m. EST

We’ll discuss:

  • What is the Good News?

  • Being a flexible catechist
  • The primacy of grace: putting the good God first

CLASS 2—Preparing a Kerygmatic Catechesis
February 28, 2024 at 4 p.m. EST

We’ll discuss:

  • The kerygma as the essential dimension of catechesis
  • The kerygma as content and as proclamation
  • Visual proclamation
  • Natural foundations for the kerygma
  • Teaching parables kerygmatically
