Pre-K through 8th Grade

The Diocese of Richmond Catechetical Curriculum is intended to assist parish Catechetical Leaders, catechists and parents in the sharing of faith to the children of our diocese, ages 3 years through 8th grade.

The Catechetical Curriculum is organized by grade level, with Catechist and Parent Pages outlining the developmental readiness of children, and curricula content organized by the six tasks of catechesis and the liturgical year. Also included in the Catechetical Curriculum are suggestions for ministering to children with disabilities and an appendix of Catholic Prayers and Practices.
