Education to Faith
We believe that this society had its beginning in simple catechism lesson
We believe that the education of religious dimension is central to personal development of the young. This dimension helps the young to pass the door of faith to discover the joy of faith.
We believe that faith formation leads the young to intimate relationship with Jesus.
We believe that Salesian Catechesis is not the end point of an activity but part of everything we offer. Catechesis is an essential element of evangelisation of the young.
Through this dimension, we are like Jesus walking the road to Emmaus, listening, educating, celebrating, befriending as a journey of faith in the lives of the young.
