Catechetical leaders are called to foster the development of a living, conscious, and active faith that includes transmitting Catholic beliefs, traditions, and values. The K-12 Religion Curriculum Guide which is organized around the four pillars of the Catechism of the Catholic Church: Creed, Sacrament, Christian Life, and Prayer provides a framework for instruction. For information about the correlation of a specific textbook series with the curriculum consult the publisher or contact the Office of Formation and Discipleship.
The K-12 Religion Curriculum Guide was adopted for the Archdiocese of Atlanta with permission from the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, Office of Catholic Education.
The Guidelines for Catholic Religious Education in the Home provide parents and parish religious education staff with information to facilitate faith formation in a home setting while maintaining a connection to the parish community.
Conformity Listing of Catechetical Texts and Series
The Archdiocese of Atlanta adheres to the “Conformity Listing of Catechetical Texts and Series” provided by the USCCB Subcommittee on the Catechism. This Conformity List is a list of catechetical texts or series which have been judged to be in conformity with the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Pastors, however, may choose to define a parish appropriate list of approved texts or require a specific text be used.
