Full-Time Coordinator of Youth Formation & Youth Ministry – St. John Neumann Catholic Church, Eagan
Job DescriptionNO ONE CAN LAY A FOUNDATION OTHER THAN THE ONE THAT IS THERE, NAMELY JESUS CHRIST. (1 COR. 3:11)
In Catechesi Tradendae, St. John Paul II wrote, “It is true that catechesis can be given anywhere, but I wish to stress, in accordance with the desire of many Bishops, that the parish community must continue to be the prime mover and preeminent place for catechesis.”
In Lumen Fidei, Pope Francis wrote, “Since faith is one, it must be professed in all its purity and integrity. Precisely because all the articles of faith are interconnected, to deny one of them, even of those that seem least important, is tantamount to distorting the whole . . . hence the need for vigilance in ensuring that the deposit of faith is passed on its entirety . . . and that all aspects of the profession of faith are duly emphasized.”
