Catechesis at All Souls

Spring 2022

This spring we are studying together the recently issued ACNA Catechism, To Be A Christian. This text has been designed as a resource for the renewal of Anglican catechetical practice. It follows the form of the classic & Reformation catechisms with the inclusion of foundational teachings on the Gospel, the Apostle’s Creed, and the Ten Commandments in a question & answer format.

These sections are followed by questions which address classical Anglican formation practices such as the Sacraments, Daily Prayer, and worship. For some, these classes will lead to becoming confirmed or received into the Anglican Communion on May 8 through the laying on of hands of our interim bishop, the Rt. Rev. Martyn Minns. If you have questions or would like more information, contact Deacon Mary.

Resources

To Be An Anglican is available in PDF form on the ACNA website.

The 2019 ACNA Book of Common Prayer is always used as a resource in our catechesis classes. It also can be viewed or downloaded.

In the spring of 2021, in the absence of in-person teaching, we produced a weekly catechesis podcast: Signs of Life.  If you would like to listen (or re-listen) to one of these sessions they can be found here.
