Those who minister to catechumens and candidates need faith. They also need training, information and ongoing formation. Catechumenate provides all three. In fact, everyone on the parish initiation team needs his or her own copy. Catechumenate is published six times a year with 48 pages per issue. Illuminating articles, reflections on the Sunday scriptures, information about coming events and the beauty of the cover art will be welcome companions on the journey of all who work with the catechumenate. A handy binder holds two full years of issues for storage and reference.
