Parish Catechetical Plan 

An Assessment Resource, CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD

During the workshops in June and September 2011 that introduced the process for formulating a Parish Catechetical Plan (Creating A Parish Catechetical Plan by Rev. Robert Duggan) one of the crucial steps discussed was the importance of assessing current faith formation opportunities in the parish.

Here is an assessment tool made available for our use from RCLBenziger Publishers, “On Good Soil.” Based on the General Directory for Catechesis, the process, although no longer available in print, is still valid. As parishes in the North Country and Plymouth know from their experience of it, the process is easy to use and includes assessing key elements of parish faith formation. We are grateful to RCLBenziger for permission to post this resource. For other faith formation resources from RCLBenziger visit www.rclbenziger.com
