Today’s world of catechesis involves not only fidelity to the Gospel and the message we are called to proclaim, but also an awareness of the legal issues that impact our ministry. This workshop will identify and discuss thorny legal issues and their implications for today’s catechists who work in both God’s world and the secular world of legalities. A legal/ethical/Gospel model for decision making will be presented.
