New Report: Evangelization and Faith Formation of Families 2017: Report on the Survey Findings
In Winter 2017, the Evangelization Committee of the National Conference for Catechetical Leadership (NCCL) conducted a survey to understand how parishes and schools are involved in the evangelization and faith formation of families and parents/grandparents. They survey asked leaders to identify their approach to families, the ways they evangelize families and engage them in faith formation, the ways they reach families at home. The survey concluded by inviting leaders to describe the challenges they face in the evangelization and faith formation of families. The Family Survey Report presents the research findings from the 468 parishes and schools that responded. The respondents came from across the United States, representing over 400 zip codes.

Feature Articles: Evangelizing Catechesis
In 2000 the National Conference for Catechetical Leaders commissioned a series of twelve articles to explore central themes from the General Directory for Catechesis. In 2015, the NCCL Evangelization Committee invited twelve catechetical leaders to revisit the original twelve articles and offer contemporary reflections on the original themes. Throughout the first half of 2016 we will be presenting the original article with the 2016 article. We invite you to share your reflections on both articles in the Comment Section after the articles.
