In Spanish and English. The Joy of Adolescent Catechesis was written to inspire and challenge those who participate in the ministry of adolescent catechesis. The document discusses the joys and challenges of forming young disciples and empowering them to authentically encounter the person of Jesus Christ through their experience of the Catholic faith. It strives to critically examine assumptions, offers a dynamic vision and a set of vital outcomes for all leaders, and encourages deep conversation to spark the creation of new patterns of ministry to and with young people. The Joy of Adolescent Catechesis is the result of a collaborative partnership by the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry, The National Catholic Educational Association and The National Conference for Catechetical Leadership.
