Logo Jubilee of MercyOn September 25, 2016, Pope Francis will celebrate with catechists around the world the Jubilee for Catechists. The Office for Evangelization and Catechesis has prepared an online resource The Jubilee for Catechists: Announcing the Mercy of God, that is available at, for use in dioceses and parishes. The resources can be used at any time throughout the pastoral year by clergy, directors of religious education, parish pastoral workers, chaplains, Catholic teachers and parents to emphasize the special role of the catechist. They have been designed in such a way that they can be used for reflection by individuals or in a larger group setting. Dioceses and parishes may wish to use the liturgical suggestions for a special blessing of catechists either on Sunday, September 25th, 2016 or at another time when catechists are gathered together.
