In 2021, the Philippines makes history and builds milestone for celebrating its 500 years of Christianity. The Filipino faith has been tested through time and became known and recognized in the world. But aside from celebration, it is also a reality that a lot is still to be improved in catechizing the young, for they expect more on the Church to be “guide and companion”. This experience also calls for renewal in the Church to make the Gospel known, embraced, and lived upon at present. This study tries to trace back how the Christian faith started in the Philippines through the efforts of people who spread the faith and how it flourished as years went by until the present where the Church, through renewal movements, continues Her mission to all. The researcher uses document analysis approach in collecting and verifying information and faith experiences from resources in Philippine Church history and put side by side with the recent Church documents in the Philippines as way of renewal in catechesis. Finally, it proposes ways to make the teaching of faith more meaningful and effective to learners and, for catechists to be nourished always in this mission they received from Jesus.
