As we celebrate the Epiphany, we recognize the time of darkness and uncertainty experienced in the world this past year. Like the star, we are called to be a beacon of light for those who are seeking the hope of Christ. Having given deep thought as to how our organization can better reflect the light of Christ, we are proud to announce that the National Conference for Catechetical Leadership is now In Word and Witness!

We are a national Catholic community dedicated to evangelization and catechesis. We welcome all those who embrace our mission – to transform the world by reflecting Christ. We commit to standing in solidarity with all God’s people, authentically witnessing faith, and approaching organizational decision making with a spirit of discernment. Together let us share resources, grow as ministers, and transform the world.
