In their effort to increase the number of catechists in the Archdiocese of Caceres, the Caceres Catechetical Ministry is conducting the BASIC ORIENTATION PROGRAM (BOP) at the Caceres Catechetical Center. This is a comprehensive training which was designed to enhance the skills, knowledge, and attitude of new volunteer catechists. For this year, 62 generous persons responded to the call coming from different parishes of the Archdiocese. The staff of CCM is taking turns in facilitating and giving lectures regarding the fundamentals of faith. They are being assisted by invited priests as Mass presider in their daily celebration of the Eucharist. This formation started last April 20 and will be over on April 27, 2015. For those who are interested but not able to join this particular formation, a scheduled BOP will be conducted in the following vicariate: St. Michael the Archangel, St. Anne and La Porteria, St. John the Baptist and St. Paschal Baylon.
Those who will pass this training will be undergoing the Post- BOP on May 11-15, 2015 which will focus on Catechetical Methodology. After this, they will be recognized as official “Educators of the Faith” in the Archdiocese of Caceres
