Catechesis for children and youth

The Catholic Church recognizes that parents are the primary and principal educators of their children, especially in the task of faith formation.

Parish catechetical programs shall assist parents by providing formal, systematic catechesis and sacramental preparation programs. Parents present their children for initiation into the ecclesial community when they request the sacrament of Baptism. This initiation into the Mystical Body of Christ is completed through the sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist. Parents have both a right and a responsibility to be intimately involved in their child's sacramental preparation and reception, and ongoing faith formation. In consultation with the parents and catechists, pastors have the primary role in discerning the child's readiness for sacraments.

Parents have the ultimate responsibility for the catechetical formation of their children. Parents with children attending public or other non-Catholic schools have an obligation to see that their children, elementary through high school, attend parish catechetical sessions, as well as attend Mass each Sunday.
