If you have not been trained on the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston’s new curriculum for grades 1-5, please email us at email@example.com . 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or ask your DRE.
