Catechetical leaders across the country are calling for a new framework, a new model for catechesis that involves the whole community: the family, the catechumenate, the parish, Catholic schools, groups of the faithful, and basic ecclesial communities. The idea for whole community catechesis is drawn from the consideration of the way Jesus taught, the teachings of Vatican II, the General Directory for Catechesis, as well as the growing consensus in the catechetical community that the "school-house" framework lacks elements essential to catechesis. In Whole Community Catechesis in Plain English, Bill Huebsch offers concrete suggestions for a step-by-step process (the nuts-and-bolts) for implementing this catechetical model: linking liturgy and catechesis, making Christ the center of catechesis, focusing on the houshold, organizing assemblies, and more. The appendices provide sample handouts, outlines for prayer and meetings, and organizational tools. Whole Community Catechesis in Plain English is a must-have- manual for pastors, catechetical leaders, catechists, and other parish staff members.
