Faith formation, religious education and catechesis all describe our efforts to teach the Catholic faith in ways that draw all people closer to Jesus and deepen their participation in His Church. We have 148 parishes and missions throughout southern and central Indiana, each of whom strives for a comprehensive, cradle-to-grave catechetical program.

Under the loving guidance of their pastors, the catechetical leaders who we communicate with most directly (parish administrators of religious education, youth ministers and principals) are the key to our programs. By God's grace we continue enhancing faith formation throughout the archdiocese, bringing His timeless truths to our 21st century culture.
