Description
Summary:The pastoral responsibility of training children in faith requires an effective method of catechesis. This task, however, is often neglected or poorly practiced in some places. In the context of the Roman Catholic Church in Nigeria, catechesis for children faces many challenges, for it has not been updated since the missionary era. This article addresses this problem by applying a pastoral methodology of kairology for updating children's catechesis. In a thematic format, it clarifies what needs to be done and how to go about it.
