About the book:
An Echo of Easter is an introduction to the ministry of catechist informed by the new Directory for Catechesis (2020). Each of its ten chapters is centred around a theme that is explored in a reflective way, enabling individuals and groups to unpack the riches of the new Directory and reflect on practice.
Written in an accessible style to allow rich concepts to be embraced and explored, this book will help all those who are investigating what it means to develop catechesis in our parishes today, and will guide parish catechists to grow in confidence.

About the Author:
Patricia Carroll
is a pastoral theologian who grounds all her work in parish practice. She holds a licence in catechetical sciences concentrating on the priority of adult faith formation, a masters in Christian spirituality based on Rahner’s Everyday Mysticism, and a masters in Canon Law on pastoral care of parishes in light of the shortage of priests. In this book she integrates these three disciplines in an accessible way. Her previous publication, Becoming a Pastoral Parish Council, was published by Messenger Publications in 2022.

‘An Echo of Easter will enable priests, committed lay people and all those involved in catechesis to respond to the current challenge of evangelisation. This important publication calls each Christian to focus on their relationship with the Lord. It challenges today’s community of disciples to create new ways to come to know Christ and proclaim him confidently in our own day. An Echo of Easter provides a lens through which to view the key orientations in the Directory for Catechesis.’
Archbishop Dermot Farrell
