Archdiocese of Liverpool
Department of Education


The parish community, in collaboration with the home and school, has a privileged opportunity and responsibility to help all concerned to grow in their faith. This is a life long process.

To achieve this we need to help those involved in the task ...
  • to share their vision and have an adult understanding of the central truths of the Catholic Faith
  • to be able to make an informed contribution to their chosen field of work in the local church
  • to employ and encourage sound educational processes appropriate to the needs of their group and which express Gospel values

The Catholic Certificate in Religious Studies is designed for just this purpose - for those engaged in the communication of their Catholic Faith, whether directly or indirectly. It is open to teachers - primary and secondary; catechists, people involved in liturgical work and other interested adults.
The Certificate in Religious Studies (CCRS) is awarded by the Board of Religious Studies of the Bishops’ of England and Wales.
