Throughout the history of Christianity, catechists have read the signs of the times and responded in creative and prophetic ways to the imperative of passing on the faith from one generation to the next. It is our turn. We must do it here and now, in the United States of America, in light of our current realities and transitions. Let us read together the important signs that shape the lives of American Catholics and our communities today. This is the time to affirm the best of our catechetical tradition while envisioning together creative and prophetic approaches for catechesis that bring new life.
