The catechetical challenge: Faith education in the multicultural Catholic Church of Norway

Sammendrag

Rapid growth in recent years, mainly due to immigration, has made the Roman Catholic Church the most numerous Christian minority in Norway. Faced with migration-related diversity, the Church has adopted a multicultural strategy. Migrant chaplains offer Mass and pastoral care in the native languages of the most numerous immigrant groups. Still, the vision of a common Norwegian Catholicism has not been abandoned. Catechetical teaching, the organised faith education programme for children and youth, is in principle offered in Norwegian language for all participants. In practice, however, supplementary or alternative teaching in other languages is sometimes offered. This may be due to differences in language skills, pedagogical and cultural expectations, and/or familiarity with religious practice and belief. In addition to the unity/diversity issue, two further challenges may be mentioned: The rapidly growing number of children and youth creates an increasing need for competent catechists. And Catholic families are settled in almost every corner of Norway, in rural districts often far away from the nearest Catholic church. How do Catholic dioceses and parishes approach these challenges in their catechetical efforts? The paper reports preliminary findings of a pilot study in preparation for a four-year research project Non-formal faith education, the public school, and religious minorities in Norway(FAITHED), funded by the Research Council of Norway.
