The Holy Father's goal for the Catechist Jubilee taking place in Rome September 23-25, 2016, is to remind catechists that they put into practice the first Spiritual Work of Mercy:  "teach the ignorant."  Catechists from throughout the world gathering in Rome will reflect on the Holy Father's motto, "Miserando atque eligendo", and the "Calling of St. Matthew" by Caravaggio. They will also share lectio divina and walk through the holy door.

Year of Mercy Catechist Jubilee serves as Catechist Formation 2016-2017.  Participation in the Catechist Jubilee earns three catechist formation points. There will be no ITV sessions in September 2016 or January 2017.
