Here Comes Everybody
Here Comes Everybody! Whole Community Catechesis in the Parish
Anslinger Leisa
[Paper Back]

Whole Community Catechesis offers a vision of church that is both exciting and challenging. The vision is this: that one day the church, all the people of God, will fully, consciously, and actively participate, t only in the celebration of the liturgy, but in all aspects of parish life, and this life will draw them into deeper relationship with Christ who sends them forth to love and serve others. Whole Community Catechesis means Here Comes Everybody! What does Whole Community Catechesis look like in the parish? Leisa Ainslinger hears this question a lot and she sets out to answer it in Here Comes Everybody! She shares her seven-year journey at Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish in Cincinnati and describes the many elements that must come together to form Whole Community Catechesis. First and foremost, she says, the Eucharistic liturgy must be at the centre, the primary source for faith formation at all levels of the parish. She describes a formation process that is both profound and active, one that leads parishioners to a deepening awareness of Christ at the centre of their lives. Interspersed with information about the process are real-life stories and examples that bring the whole journey to life in a parish context.
