Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, the Office for Catechetical Formation (OCF) assists the Archbishop of Philadelphia in his primary responsibility of the teaching of the Catholic Faith. The OCF fosters and supports the catechetical initiatives of the Archdiocesan Catholic Schools, Parish Religious Education Programs, and Catholic Campus Ministry. To ensure that the beauty and the truth of the Catholic faith is presented with fidelity, the OCF promotes the ongoing faith formation of Administrators, Teachers, Catechists, Newman Chaplains, and Catholic Campus Ministers.
