Webinar Series | Nurturing Friendship: The Directory for Catechesis in Dialogue with Fratelli Tutti
The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops invites you to join a four-part webinar series hosted by the Office for Evangelization and Catechesis.

Every Tuesday in March for four weeks, we will explore how the new Directory for Catechesis helps us navigate Pope Francis' recent Encyclical Letter, Fratelli Tutti. We will ask: "Why is Fratelli Tutti important for the catechist, in light of the new Directory?"

We will propose ideas and concrete ways to help form communities of missionary disciples within our dioceses, eparchies, parishes, and Catholic schools.

Keynote speakers from across the country will draw insight from the two documents. The series is designed for clergy, consecrated persons, laity involved in ministry, directors and coordinators of evangelization and catechesis. All are welcome.

Deadline to register: Monday 22 February 2021.

The webinar series is offered at no cost to participants.
