Mary Pat Donoghue on the 3 Pillars of Catholic Formation: Evangelization, Catechesis, and Education

In this episode, Mary Pat Donoghue, executive director of the Secretariat of Catholic Education for the USCCB, joins hosts Shawn Peterson and Kimberly Begg to discuss the three pillars of Catholic formation: evangelization, catechesis, and education. Emphasizing the formative role of education from a young age, Catholic education aims to develop the entire person, addressing challenges faced by young people and fostering habits of mind and sacramental imagination. The conversation explores renewal efforts within Catholic education, from reinforcing Catholic identity to addressing the impact of technology on children’s faith.
