The Irish Catholic Catechism for Adults

The Irish Catholic Catechism for Adults

The Irish Catholic Catechism for Adults  Irish Catechism   The Irish Catholic Catechism for Adults is a new resource from the Irish Episcopal Conference, designed to facilitate adult faith development. It is due for publication on Thursday, 12 June.   The Catechism of the Catholic Church states that it is  ‘meant to encourage and assist in the writing of new local catechisms, which take into account various situations and  cultures, while carefully preserving the unity of faith and fidelity to Catholic teaching’.  The Irish Catholic Catechism for Adults is a response to this. It is an adaptation of the United States Catholic Catechism for Adults. Each chapter opens with a ‘story or lesson of faith’ featuring a number of notable Irish figures, as well as other well known people of faith. It’s designed to provide Irish Catholics with an accessible, easy-to-understand introduction to the teachings of the Church in a way they can relate to. I have attached a copy of the first chapters so you can see the format that it takes.   Also available is the Irish Catholic Catechism for Adults: Study Guide, a companion text which offers further suggestions for reading and study, and a session outline which can be followed in study groups.   The catechism is suitable for individual study, but it is also ideal for parish study groups and we are hoping that dioceses around the country will help and encourage their parishes to implement it.
