CHURCH IN AFRICA TODAY
IN SERVICE to JUSTICE, PEACE and RECONCILIATION
Why Catholic (September 7th 2015. 8 Seasons over 4 years.)
A Journey through the Catechism.
Why Catholic? covers the four sections of the Catechism of the Catholic Church namely Prayer, The Creed, The Sacraments and Christian Life.
Each Why Catholic? book contains twelve faith-sharing sessions for small communities
Small communities usually meet for six weeks at a time – in the fall and in Lent – completing the series over four years.
The books can also be used in a variety of ways, such as for RCIA, Parent meetings preparing them when their children will be receiving Baptism, Reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation; and for personal use.
If participants have already participated in RENEW Africa:
There are similarities and the differences, i.e. ARISE is based on the scripture; Why Catholic? is based on both scripture and the catechism. Both processes take place in the small Christian community. Both processes provide avenues to reach out to the whole parish.
Remember: Renew is a journey, our journey. It has no end.
