Catechesis is a noble and important ministry in the Church. At NAM, all teachers are certified catechists who, with their pastors and principals, work to share the teaching of Christ and his Church with the students entrusted to their care.
Our teachers follow diocesan guidelines as they reflect an understanding of the developmental level of students at each particular grade level. They are consistent with the faith of the Church and have been fully indexed and referenced to key catechetical documents, including the Catechism of the Catholic Church, the General Directory for Catechesis, and the Teaching of Christ, in the effort to sustain a common language of faith. In addition, these guidelines are complete, that is, they present for students from preschool through grade eight, the full teaching of the Church as reflected in scripture and tradition under the guiding authority of the magisterium.
