About the Office of Education, Evangelization and Catechesis

The Archdiocesan Office of Education, Evangelization and Catechesis (OEEC) was established in January 2016 to align with the pastoral planning process and the overall efforts of the archdiocese to strengthen and expand the organizational effectiveness, efficiency and responsiveness to the changing needs of the parishes, schools, clergy and faithful of the Archdiocese of Hartford. The ultimate goal of the office is to develop a continuum of faith development and Catholic formation that extends from childhood to adulthood. One of the overarching goals of the new office is to break down the “siloes” that often exist in pastoral ministry and to integrate the evangelizing efforts of those who serve the parishes and schools
