Lectionary-based Catechesis

Lectionary-based catechesis draws upon three areas:

• The Sunday Scripture readings of the liturgical year
• The Liturgy of the Word, including the homily, creed and general intercessions
• The liturgical assembly’s lives and experiences

Some groups gather to read the upcoming Sunday Scriptures and reflect on their life situations in relationship to the readings and liturgical season. Others use lectionary-based publications, which range from resources for homilists and readers to catechetical publications for various age groups and families.

All resources focus on the essential elements of Catholicism addressed over the three-year lectionary cycle period.

Lectionary-based catechesis is not Children's Liturgy of the Word. Children's Liturgy of the Word is not a model of comprehensive catechesis.
