Catechism/YouCat Pilgrimage to Knock Shrine - Saturday, 15 June 2024

Do you want to learn more about your catholic faith?

Do you want to know and share the catechism of the catholic church with your children?

In parish faith communities throughout the country religious education, catechism, prayer study, and adult faith formation have been named as essential for nurturing individuals' spiritual lives and fostering a deeper relationship with God.

There have been calls for formation and training programmes to encompass a deep understanding of the Gospel message, the Church's mission in the world and Catholic Social Teaching*.

YouCat (Youth Catechism of the Catholic Church) is a faith training programme of the Christian faith for anyone who wants to learn more about what Catholics believe. YouCat is not just for young people but for anyone who wants to explore the Christian faith.
