Echoes cover

You want to prepare and train those who hand-on faith… but how? Echoes is a parish-based training resource. It offers a well-rounded basic formation in the Catholic faith and aims to deepen the participants’ love for Christ and his Church.

Who is Echoes for?

It is great for those interested in parish catechesis, but is also engaging for any adult interested in the faith.

How does echoes begin in a parish?

Echoes is parish-based. It is led by a trained facilitator. Facilitator training requires 1½ hours of training. No previous experience is required.
