Centre Jean XXIII, Luxembourg – Saturday 30 March 2019
Catechesis: Education in the Faith
The Church in Luxembourg, as in many other countries, is facing the challenge of how to provide catechesis (faith-based religious formation, including for the Sacraments) in a changing social and educational environment. This forum will share experiences and exchange insights from the English-speaking Church in different parts of Europe. The forum will provide inspiration not only to the English-speaking Catholic Community but also to the wider Church in Luxembourg.
The Catechesis Forum is organised by the International English-speaking Community of the Parish of Luxembourg Notre-Dame and is open to everyone interested and/or involved in providing catechesis in Luxembourg.
