Echoes of Faith Plus is a basic-level, video-assisted resource for the formation, training, and enrichment of adults who have taken responsibility for handing on the Catholic faith, especially catechists in parish and Catholic school settings. Echoes was sponsored and developed by the National Conference for Catechet-ical Leadership (NCCL) and produced by RCL • Resources for Christian Living.
The Echoes project is divided into three series of modules:The Catechist:
Four Modules for different grade levels of children and youth
One module for facilitators of adult faith formation
One overview module on human and faith development
Four modules treating the four pillars of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, plus a fifth module introducing Sacred Scripture. (Note: These modules can also be used for general adult faith formation.)
The main components of each module are:
The length of time required to complete each module varies with the length of the DVD and how it is used. This module should take approximately four hours to process. The key to success with Echoes of Faith Plus is your willingness to engage in the complete process. Ideally, your reflection process will take place in a group setting that models the kind of Christian community you wish to establish in your own faith sharing groups. If you must process the module alone, share your insights later in a group setting or with a friend in ministry.
