Nostalgia is inimical to authentic faith

Nostalgia, which looks back to a particular point in the past with longing for its return – no matter what point in the past it might be – is counter-productive at best and idolatrous at worst. An authentic faith, even and especially one grounded in a transcendent hope, must be lived in the present. A helpful reflection and reminder can be found at:

Nostalgia for a “golden age” hurts the Church, both on left and right

The Catholic faith is more than a series of doctrines; it’s a way of seeing and being in the world

This reflection by a convert to Catholicism can be a helpful starting point for those who have been Catholic all their lives to begin to understand how an adequate formation in the faith means much more that merely coming to knowledge about Catholic doctrine. It is a way of seeing and being in the world. As those involved in the ministries of evangelization and catechesis, we have a responsibility to keep these in mind.

Newcomers to the Church should speak less, listen more

Launching the New Curriculum!

 If you have not been trained on the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston’s new curriculum for grades 1-5, please email us at curriculum@archgh.org .  The new curriculum applies the newest learning techniques and assesses the learner’s knowledge. To date we have held three training sessions for Parish Catechetical Leaders and three catechist training sessions for those who use OSV and Loyola parish books.  The curriculum stems from the Archdioceses’ Catechetical Framework and six tasks of catechesis from the Catholic Church’s catechetical documents. Become familiar with the Four Big Ideas that will stretch across all phases of faith formation throughout the life cycle.  Email us at curriculum@archgh.org   or ask your DRE.
