Catechetical School


The Daughters of St. Paul have accepted the invitation of Bishop Philip Dickmans of Miracema-TO, to contribute to the systematic formation of the catechists of his diocese in 2020. The participants in the School for Catechetical Teachers come from various parishes, communities and mission areas.

The two-year-long scholastic itinerary is divided into eight parts, one held every other month. The “text books” are from the series Casa dell’Iniziazione Cristiana (House of Christian Initiation), published by the FSPs. The four parts of this year’s itinerary, which focus on deepening the elements of fundamental catechesis, are being guided by Sr. Maria Vanderlane de Araújo, fsp.

Ninety-seven people participated in the first set of encounters, held in Miracema from 31 January to 2 February at the Training Center for City Leaders.
