About DOMSEC
The Diocese of Menevia School of Evangelisation and Catechetics
Established by the Bishop of Menevia, the Diocese of Menevia School of Evangelisation and Catechetics (DOMSEC) provides formation and support to Catholics (clergy and laity) who proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ and form others in the Catholic faith.
 

Our Mission
Our mission is to form and support all those responsible for the work of evangelisation and catechesis in the parishes of the Diocese (clergy, catechists, evangelisers, parents, teachers) and indeed all Catholics as they carry out Christ’s command to make disciples of all nations. The School provides the formation and support through courses, specialised training, workshops and regular events. For its mission, the Diocese of Menevia School of Evangelisation...
 
Core Objectives

  • To organise regular events that can bring about a more active practice of the faith
  • To provide an organised framework and resource base for evangelisation and catechetical work in the Diocese
  • To work with parishes and deaneries to design and implement evangelisation programmes that address identified needs and challenges

St Thomas Aquinas, Summa Contra Gentiles, I, 1). For eternal life is to know the only true God and Jesus Christ...
