We, the Staff of the Office for Evangelization and Discipleship of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, are charged with providing evangelizing catechetical leadership that fosters an Archdiocesan, parish-centered culture of Disciples Making Disciples.
We continue as ever in our mission of assisting Archbishop Schnurr in “directing and moderating all the catechetical activities of the Archdiocese” (NDC 59, GDC 265). Our Catechetical Certification processes and it’s requirements provide the means by which we empower others to effectively evangelize, disciple and teach the faith at every level.
The Office for Evangelization and Discipleship envisions vibrant parish and school communities on fire with faith. These communities of faith engage in evangelizing catechesis to form committed disciples who reflect the light of Christ in the World.
