YOUCAT for Kids

YOUCAT for Kids Programme - WMOF2018 Pastoral Congress (RDS)

YOUCAT is ‘Youth Catechism of the Catholic Church’ for children, which will be launched at WMOF2018. It is an accessible, contemporary expression of the Catholic Faith for children which explores Creation, the Creed, the Sacraments and Commandments in child-friendly language, to help children and parents to discover their Catholic faith together. This programme has been developed as a resource for the YOUCAT for Kids book.

Families are crucial in the transmission of faith but sometimes they lack the time and resources for this important role. This workshop will demonstrate how to use "YOUCAT for Kids" to initiate faith talks within the family and to discover the beauties of the Church together.
