In the continuous celebration of the 500 Years of Christianity (YOC) in the Philippines, our National Catechetical Study (NCS) 2021: Pastoral Action Research and Intervention (PARI) Project, presents this research-based module entitled, Catechetical Modules - Christian Faith: Call, Gift, Mission. This is part of the series of special E-news issues highlighting the Seven Catechetical Book Gifts to our Catholic Church produced by the NCS.

Catechetical Modules (CM), the inspiration roots from the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) Pastoral Exhortation on the Era of New Evangelization entitled, “Live Christ, Share Christ” (Looking Forward to our Five Hundredth) released last July 23, 2012, by Most Rev. Jose S. Palma, DD, the then CBCP President. This project ushers the start of the nine-year spiritual journey that will culminate with the Great Jubilee of 2021, the 5th centenary of the coming of Christianity in our beloved land. Thus, these Catechetical Modules (CM) respond to the call of the Spirit for a New Evangelization by utilizing the nine pastoral priorities as key module themes of this project. These are Integral Faith Formation (2013); Laity (2014); The Poor (2015); The Eucharist and of the Family (2016); The Parish as a Communion of Communities (2017); Clergy and Religious (2018); Youth (2019); Ecumenism, Interreligious Dialogue, and Indigenous Peoples (2020); and, Missio ad Gentes (2021).

Contextually, these themes reflect the Filipino concepts of Pananampalataya (2013); Mga Layko (2014); Ang Mga Mahihirap (2015); Ang Eukaristiya at Pamilya (2016); Ang Parokya Bilang Komunyon ng mga Pamayanan (2017); Klero at Mga Relihiyoso (2018); Mga Kabataan (2019); Ekumenismo, Diyalogo sa Pagitan ng Mga Relihiyon, at mga Katutubo (2020), at Misyon sa mga Bansa (2021), which these modules hope to bring forth in various spaces of catechesis in the country.

The PDF versions of these modules are available here on our website. You may also check out the sample flipbook version of the module made available here on ISSUU!

Let us go forth and share this blessing!  

Mabuhay ang mga Katekistang Lingkod ng Pilipinas!

Salamat po Poong Maykapal sa patnubay sa aming Simbahang Katolika!
