NeoCathecuminal Community

The Neocatechumenal Way, also known as the Neocatechumenate, or The Way, is an Ecclesial Movement within the Catholic Church dedicated to the Christian formation of adults, having been described by Saint Pope John Paul II as "an itinerary of Catholic formation valid for our society and for our times". [1] It was formed in Madrid in 1964 by Kiko Argüello and Carmen Hernández and received definitive approval from the Holy See in 2008. [2]

Taking its inspiration from the catechumenate of the early Catholic Church, by which converts from paganism were prepared for baptism, it provides post-baptismal formation to adults who are already members of the Church. It also runs 100 seminaries in various locations (including Perth WA) [3], and is responsible for hundreds of missionary families who live in many cities around the World.
