The pre-kindergarten to twelfth grade Catechetical Curriculum was a major initiative of the Catechetical Master Plan for the Diocese of
Greensburg. The new curriculum was announced in 2010, and has since governed the content of faith formation for students in
Catholic schools, parish catechetical programs, and for those families who
choose formally to teach the faith to their children in their home.
The curriculum is
comprehensive and universal because it addresses the content, expected
outcomes, prayers to be learned, and annual classroom hours for all Catholic
children and youth in the diocese. Additionally, the critical
area of the Catholic approach to marriage, love, and sexuality will be
addressed in the middle and high school years. The curriculum will be able to
be used with any textbook series found to be in conformity with The
Catechism of the Catholic Church by the U.S. Bishops or any catechetical
model in use in the diocese such as, Catechesis of the Good Shepherd or
