       Manila, The Philippines, 4 March 2021 — We congratulate Fr Sal Putzu, SDB, and his Word & Life Publications team for the Study Edition of the new “Directory for Catechesis” – already 17th in the series of Church Magisterium ‘Study Editions’ – started since 2004 with (Saint) John Paul II ‘Evangelium Vitae’.

       This work follows the well-established tradition of accompanying the official documents of the universal Magisterium with sets of “Study Aids” which are meant to help the readers and students master the content of the document and apply it in the light of the local context.

       The ‘new’ Directory for Catechesis – after the previous edition of 1997, published in March 2020 by the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization, is divided in 3 parts, total of 456 pages:

1. Catechesis in the Church’s Mission of Evangelization

2. The Process of Catechesis

3. Catechesis in the Particular Churches

       The Study Aids comprises

1. Quick finding thematic list of topics

2. Comprehensive subject index

3. Methodological suggestions

4. What’s new in this Directory (1997> 2020)

5. Synoptic char of the three Directories

       Printed copy of the new “Directory for Catechesis” is available at the Word & Life Bookstore in Makati, and online, thru Shopee
