Paskong Katekista 2021:
Our Gifts to 500 Years of Christianity (YoC)

Our National Catechetical Study (NCS) 2021: Pastoral Action Research and Intervention (PARI) Project celebrates our Paskong Katekista with seven gifts of publication in commemoration of our 500 Years of Christianity (YoC). These gifts meaningfully and creatively represent our research-based book outputs, which we humbly share with our Filipino catechists, for our shared mission to evangelize.  
  1. Katekista: Mga Tulang Pananaliksik Hango sa NCS 2016-2018
  2. Catechetical Modules - Christian Faith: Call, Gift, Mission
  3. Katesismo Kay San Jose: Kabanalang Tinig ng Katahimikan
  4. Katekistang Malikhain:  Mga Turong-Gabay sa Gawaing Katekesis
  5. Katekistang Agapay-Alagad: Isang Pagsipat sa Katesismo sa mga Nakatatanda
  6. Katekista Findings and Insights from the NCS 2016-2021: Pastoral Action Research and Intervention (PARI) Project
  7. Katekista In Manus Tuas (In Your Hands): A Handbook on Being, Becoming, & Belonging to Catechetical Ministry in the Philippines
This Christmas dedication echoes Pope Francis's prayer intention to catechists worldwide for December 2021. Our Pope's prayer reflects our NCS 2021 PARI Project's research insights about the stories and struggles of our faith-driven Filipino catechists, whom we consider the hidden treasures of our Catholic church. He explains: "The lay ministry of catechists is a vocation; it's a mission… It's an entire way of being." Together with all the catechists, we are one in responding to the Pope's call of proclaiming the Gospel with gentleness and creativity! 

Masaya at makabuluhang Paskong Katekista po sa ating lahat!
