The official NCCL resource for understanding and using the Vatican's new Directory for Catechesis

The 2020 Directory for Catechesis is the third general catechetical directory for the universal Church and the first document of its kind since 1997, written to apply the Catholic Church’s principles and directives for catechesis to the unique situations and circumstances of the modern era.

A joint publication of OSV and the National Conference for Catechetical Leadership (NCCL), the Catechist’s Guide to the Directory for Catechesis introduces catechists to the structure and content of this new and important document. Written in accessible language for anyone who teaches the Catholic Faith to others, this brief, magazine-style guide provides an overview of the organization of the directory, key quotes from the document, and discussion of the major themes and how they relate to catechesis today.

Complete with reflection questions and practical suggestions to help catechists apply it to their ministry, the Catechist’s Guide to the Directory for Catechesis is the perfect way to help both new and seasoned catechists and religious educators get started with the new directory.

The launching of the new Directory for Catechesis is the next significant moment in the Church’s history. This document offers everyone involved in catechesis the opportunity to live more deeply our mission to echo the Faith. NCCL, in partnership with Our Sunday Visitor, is pleased to provide a meaningful resource to unpack the implications and opportunities of this latest directory. – Margaret Matijasevic, Executive Director of NCCL
