The Liturgical Year: A Cycle for Catechesis


Pope Francis tells us that the “liturgy is the first teacher of the catechism.” The liturgical cycles of seasons and feasts form us in the mystery of Christ and teach us what it means to be his disciple in the world. By using the liturgy as its source, this workshop provides simple methods that will help teachers and catechists accommodate their classes and formation to the liturgical year. We will explore integrating the Sunday Gospel, the lives of the saints, and reflections on liturgical experiences into your catechesis as well as creating a seasonal environment for prayer in the classroom.
