Opening Keynote- A New Directory for Catechesis for a New Time in the Life of the Church and the World

September 19, 2020, 11:00am (EDT)

The Catholic catechetical community welcomes the 2020 Directory for Catechesis, the first document of such nature in the 21st century. One cannot underestimate the newness and importance of this directory. It captures the freshness and prophetic voice of Pope Francis’ pontificate as well as that of previous papacies since the Second Vatican Council. It echoes the wisdom of the Council in many ways while projecting it to address urgent realities of our time. Most importantly, the new directory arrives at a time of critical transformations in our church, the U.S. society and the global order. The document is an invitation for catechetical leaders and evangelizers to look at catechesis with renewed imagination, with our feet on the ground, and with a missionary spirit. This keynote presentation proposes a theological and socio-historical framework to read and interpret the 2020 Directory for Catechesis.
