Evangelization is about being enlivened with joy of the Gospel, and then compelled to share the Good News. Through evangelization, young people are called into a personal and life-changing encounter with Jesus Christ in and through the Church.
Catechesis allows young people to deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ and the Church after first hearing the Good News and having encountered Jesus Christ through Evangelization.This workshop will focus on the content, focus and vision of the New Directory for Catechesis as an opportunity to re-imagine our approach to Evangelization and Catechesis for young people of all ages.
