Catechism of the Catholic Church

Catechism as the “sure norm for the teaching of the faith”.

Catechesis makes the message contemporary by presenting it to a particular time.
It is both biblical and liturgical, a proclamation, that fosters the internal unity of the church.
It allows the laity’s faith to grow and mature into responsible participation in the church’s life.
It offers the Gospel message to all who wish to acquaint themselves with what the Church teaches and tries to live.
