2018-2020 Catechetical Directory
for the Apostolic Vicariate of Southern Arabia
“Nevertheless, the specific aim of catechesis is to develop, with God’s help, an as yet initial faith, and to advance in fullness and to nourish day by day the Christian life of the faithful young and old...Catechesis aims therefore at developing understanding of the mystery of Christ in the light of God’s word, so that the whole of a person's humanity is impregnated by that word.”
(Catechesi Tradendae, 20)
The Office of Christian Formation has worked collaboratively with catechists, priests, and the bishop of the Vicariate to put together this directory. In it you will find information regarding all aspects of the catechetical program in our vicariate: sacramental preparation for children and adults, catechist training, an overview of all the catechism programs (English, Arabic, French, Italian, etc.), liturgy information, and so forth.
