Catechesis as a “Podvig” in terms of Fellowship

Pavilion 4

Catechesis is training for the life of faith – a living and direct transfer of experience and Church Tradition from one believer to another. The catechist has the opportunity to really see a person and really come into fellowship with him or her, which requires – and itself becomes – something of a spiritual accomplishment (podvig) on the level of fellowship. We invite you to come and share your experiences, which are always valuable and completely unique.

18 August 


Discussion: The relationship between a Catechist and his student: Necessity, or “Optional Extra”?

     How to explain to another person at catechesis what the salt of life and meaning of life in faith is?
     What sort of personal and church experience should a catechist use in his work and share with his student? How can this experience be harnessed, actualized and expanded?  

19 August 


Discussion: The fellowship of the Catechist as a Basis and Source of Inspiration for Catechesis 

     Where does a Catechist get the strength for sharing, so that he can risk the spiritual accomplishment of true fellowship with his students?”
     In whom and where does the Catechist see the church? What does the environment of the church mean to a Catechist?
