Advanced Catechetical Ministries  ACM


The program of formation in Advanced Catechetical Ministries seeks to enable the integration of the participant’s personal faith development with the overall objective of preparing for sharing that faith.
In a three-phase process, participants are introduced to the core themes of Church teaching and catechetical praxis.
The Theology Phase, the Catechetical Phase and the Practicum Phase of the program incorporate a course of studies consistent with the General Directory for Catechesis, National Directory for Catechesis, Catechism of the Catholic Church, United States Catholic Catechism for Adults, Co-Workers in the Vineyard and Our Hearts Were Burning Within Us along with our Archdiocesan Religious Education vision of missionary discipleship.
