On Sunday, September 19th, the Church celebrates Catechetical Sunday. This yearly celebration is a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the role that each person plays, by virtue of Baptism, in handing on the faith and being a witness to the Gospel. The Directory for Catechesis reminds us that, “The catechist belongs to a Christian community and is an expression of it.”
On Catechetical Sunday, those who are called to serve as catechists at the parish are called forth to be commissioned for their ministry. Our COTLF/STS teachers and catechists will be commissioned by Fr. Manny at the 9am Mass. Please join us in praying for them as they begin their new year of ministry!
