 Adeo is inspired by the teaching of the Catholic Church that all Christians are called to holiness in their everyday life.



Adeo classes meet in small groups, approximately six students, at the homes of host families in Manhattan. This setting helps the children understand that our homes are part of the Church. Teaching in the homes also provides a personable atmosphere that encourages lively and intellectual interactions and fosters critical thinking.


Our volunteer teachers are the core of Adeo. Adeo teachers volunteer their work and time and, as catechists, they fulfill a special call or vocation. They imitate Jesus as teacher and are living witnesses of mercy as they go out to the different homes, instruct, and counsel the students. Adeo provides volunteer teachers with constant formation, mentoring and assistance.

Formation: Teachers participate in catechetical training throughout the year to become familiar with the content of the lessons and teaching methodology.


The maximum number of students per class is six, provided there are sufficient volunteer teachers. Students may not be added without the approval of the Adeo office.
