Union of Catechists

Union of Catechists of Jesus Crucified and of Mary Immaculate

The Union of Catechists of Jesus Crucified and of Mary Immaculate was founded in Turin by Venerable Br. Teodoreto of the Christian Schools in 1914 with the aim of “forming an association of fervent young people to help them to live in the world an intensely Christian life”, animated by catechistical and educational intentions.

In this intention he was supported, encouraged and advised, not only by his superiors, in the spirit of his Founder, St. John Baptist De La Salle, but also by the Servant of God, Fra Leopoldo Maria Musso, OFM, who accompanied him with prayer and with the words of Jesus Crucified and of Mary Immaculate.

Nowadays the Union of Catechists is a secular Institute for the practice of Christian perfection in the world and for the catechistical and social apostolate in all life and work environments. It includes Catechists, Consecrated persons and Associates and, in a broader sense, the Adorers’ Movement.

Their common ideal: to live, pray, work, and serve for the good of the Church and of Society, drawing on Jesus Crucified, the heart of the world.
