Episcopal Commission on Catechesis and Catholic Education (ECCCE)
Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) -
The work of ECCCE, in addition to its responsibility regarding Catholic formal education, is to assist and serve the dioceses regarding all aspects of the catechetical ministry nationwide, including new trends, new programs and materials, improved training programs, etc. (GDC 269) ECCCE maintains listings of the current catechetical institutes nationwide (click here to view list), and is involved in evaluating catechetical materials and religious education textbooks and various catechetical projects. Most present catechetical research is carried on in view of graduate schools’ academic requirements, and hence must be adapted for responding creatively to the pastoral needs of the Christian communities throughout the Philippines. (Rev. NCDP, 477)
The ECCCE supervises the National Catechetical Office of the Philippines (NCOP), which is responsible for catechetical publications, and makes studies and recommendations for the promotion of an effective Campus Ministry.
