New Apostolic Letter of Pope Francis
Pope Francis highlights the indispensable role catechists fulfil in teaching the Good News of Jesus Christ. Already in the New Testament we find men and women helping the Apostle Paul to communicate the Good News. It is truly an ‘ancient ministry’ and one that has continued throughout the centuries to our present day.
Recognising the work of catechists around the world, in this Apostolic Letter Pope Francis formally establishes the ‘Ministry of the Catechist’.
