|dc.description.abstract||As the National Catechetical Directory continues to address adult
religious education, guidelines are given for how this catechesis is to be
accomplished. The very first item calls to attention the fact that "Adults
should play a central role in their education. They should identify their
needs, plan ways to meet then, and take part in the evaluation of programs
and activities." (#185) That is the function of an adult catechetical team.
Members of the parish come together to learn the components of
education, to assess the needs by consulting with a wider group of
parishioners and then to act on those expressed needs.
The parish which | serve as Director of Religious Education has no
such team. It is my desire to bring into being an adult catechetical team to
meet the needs of the parishioners as they strive to live out their Christian
lives in a world that often seems to be less than Christian.||en_US
