‘The catechesis of children, young people and adults aims at teaching them to meditate on the Word of God in personal prayer, practising it in liturgical prayer and internalizing it at all times in order to bear fruit in a new life.’
CCC 2688

In living out this vision, the Derry Diocesan Catechetical Centre tries to bring people of every age into a closer relationship with Jesus in the Body of Christ. For this to happen in a dynamic way the family, the Catholic school and the parish community need to work in unity.

For this life-giving and loving relationship with Jesus to grow and for parish communities to flourish in a rapidly changing world and Church it is necessary to meet the challenges of today with the Gospel message proclaimed in a simple, enthusiastic and positive way.
