Diocese of Green Bay Religious Education-Youth Ministry


Foundational Catechetical Certification Trainers

fcclogoThe purpose of catechetical certification is to "help the whole community of faith to come to at least a basic standard of knowledge of Christ and of the teachings of the Church" and to "prepare the next generations to answer generously the call to holiness" (from Bishop David L. Ricken's Pastoral Letter A New Moment for Catechesis in the Diocese of Green Bay, November 2009).

Further, Bishop Ricken announced that the new adult catechism, The United States Catechism for Adults (USCCA) is to be the foundational text for all adult faith formation and catechesis in the Diocese of Green Bay. Our certification process is to engage the whole community in the ongoing formation of their Catholic faith and to provide the best possible training for all people involved in catechesis.
