This year, the Church will celebrate Catechetical Sunday on September 20, 2020. The 2020 theme is I received from the Lord what I also handed on to you. Those who the Community has designated to serve as catechists will be called forth to be commissioned for their ministry. Catechetical Sunday 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. Catechetical Sunday is an opportunity for all to rededicate themselves to this mission as a community of faith.
Catechist is a Greek word that means: “one who echoes/shares the faith, an instructor.” Within our parishes, we have dedicated catechists (parents, extended family and the actual entire parish) as well as trained individuals who teach the Catholic faith and share the love of Jesus Christ.

In this video, Bishop Gregory Parkes imparts a special blessing upon our catechists and thanks them for their ministry.
