Metropolitan Hilarion presides over the working group drafting the Russian Orthodox Church’s up-to-day catechesis

admin | 14 February 2013

Metropolitan Hilarion of Volokolamsk chaired a meeting of the Synodal Biblical and Theological Commission’s working group for drafting the ROC’s up-to-date Catechesis. The meeting took place on February 12, 2013, at the Department for External Church Relation.

The meeting focused on the need to implement the recent Bishops’ Council’s decision concerning the deadline for drafting the Catechesis. The Biblical and Theological Commission was instructed to have the drafting completed by the next Bishops’ Council.


Metropolitan Hilarion informed the meeting about the progress made in the work on the Catechesis. A report on the readiness of some sections of the Catechesis was made by S. Kravets, director of the Orthodox Encyclopaedia Center. The meeting considered the method of the drafting and steps for speeding it up in the light of the Bishops’ Council’s decision.


The working group for drafting the modern Catechesis of the Russian Orthodox Church was set up by the Holy Synod Decision of December 25, 2009.
