Catechesis comes from the Greek. It means "to echo or re-sound the word." In this sense, a "catechist" is one who echoes or re-sounds the word of God. As a person of faith, a catechist is one who believes, not an expert in bible studies, doctrine, sprirtuality, or theology. The catechist is able to make the connection between faith and life, between doctrine and life, between theology and life, and can speak about those connections.
The R.C.I.A. Catechists shares scripture with those going through the RCIA process on Sunday mornings. Resources are provided to help with this ministry.
