Neocathecumenal Way

Saint John Paul II defined the Neocatechumenal Way as an itinerary of Catholic formation, valid for our society and for our times, a catechumenate at the service of the Bishop to implement in the parishes the Christian initiation and an ongoing education in faith, since, as the catechism of the catholic church states, “By its very nature infant Baptism requires a post-baptismal catechumenate. There is a need not only for instruction after baptism, but also for the necessary flowering of baptismal grace in personal growth”.
