Catechism class, primarily, in our tradition, known as “Sunday School” is mainly providing concentrated faith formation to our young children on every Sunday after or before Eucharistic Celebration. Though the children come for Holy Mass every Sunday along with their parents it is the primary duty of the church to impart the knowledge about the bible and the church to young children, consequently, they would be strong in faith.

As the catholic Church teaches the effect of faith formation is twofold- evangelical and relational: “The definitive aim of catechesis is to put people not only in touch, but also in communion and intimacy with Jesus Christ” (Catechesi Tradendi, 5, and CCC 426).The main purpose of catechism or faith formation is to build a community of strong faithful by knowing Jesus, loving Jesus and living in Jesus: finally to become His disciples. By all means it is through this formal teaching we help them building a good relationship with God.
