NCCL’s members represent the full spectrum of catechetical leadership: bishops, pastors, diocesan and parish directors of religious education, academics and publishers of catechetical materials. Today, it is the only independent national organization exclusively dedicated to serving the Catholic Church’s catechetical mission in the United States.
Diocesan Memberships: Any Diocese or Archdiocese may become an organizational member of the NCCL and include in their membership any diocesan staff engaged in ministry that reflects a catechetical component e.g., Office of Catechesis, Office of Youth Ministry, Office of Evangelization, etc. This includes Bishops, Associates and Administrative support staff within the diocesan structure. This membership does NOT include PCL’s ministering in your diocese (please see Individual Membership option). Once you register your diocese, we’ll contact you via email with instructions and a unique link and code for you and your staff to register with, providing them access to all the benefits of membership.
Upgrade Your Diocesan Membership to Diocesan Plus: Upgrading your membership is a new way for diocese and archdiocese to support the parishes in your area by signing up for (or upgrading current diocesan membership) an upgraded membership, which includes unlimited parish catechetical leaders serving church in your diocesan area. Like regular Diocesan Memberships above, we’ll send you a special link, code, and instructions for signing up those staff and PCLs in your area, and it will be up your diocesan office to provide those to your leaders.
The Annual Dues Assessment is based on the Catholic population of the above mentioned Arch (Diocese). The population figure is taken from the statistics in the most recent edition of the PJ Kennedy Directory. See description below for the details.
