Empowering adults to use their gifts to teach young disciples.
Saturday, August 11, 2018
9am – 3pm
Please RSVP on the form on this page!
Our third annual Catechist Day (Cat Day) is this summer on Saturday, August 11, for all existing catechists, core members, RCIA leaders and those interested in serving in those ministries. All those who serve as catechists in any capacity at our parish and plan to do so next year must attend this day (exact times to be determined, but likely morning to early afternoon). This important event will include a keynote, training, lunch, prayer, praise and worship, and breakout workshops specific to your ministries. The sign -in table will open at 8:30am with coffee and donuts, and we will start with prayer right at 9am.
The role of Catechist in our parish is an extremely important role, and we are constantly in need of more people to offer their time and talent. If you are even remotely interested in being a catechist, we encourage you to attend Cat Day and check out this ministry.
Catechists in our parish include those who assist with:
- K-6 Catechesis
- Catechesis of the Good Shepherd
- Young Church (Middle School & High School)

PRAYER FOR MORE CATECHISTS
Lord Jesus Christ,
We thank you for the love and mercy you show each of us. By the grace you have given us at our Baptism, you have entrusted us with the privilege and responsibility of carrying out your mission on earth – to be your witness in the world, bringing your love and your kingdom to every person we encounter.
It was you who said “let the children come to me, and do not prevent them” (Matthew 19:14). Just as you spoke these words to your first disciples, you speak the same words to caring adults of this parish and you call them by name to respond to this mission (Isaiah 43:1). Therefore, we especially come to you in thanksgiving for the desire you have for a relationship with every child that walks through our doors. We ask that you touch those adults you call to serve as catechists, giving them the ears to hear your voice and a heart that courageously responds to your will.
We turn now to your mother, Mary, asking that those you are calling to be catechists and core members will respond with the same “Yes!” as she did at the Spirit’s prompting, for we know every child in our catechesis program may be only ONE caring Christian away from a deeper, more meaningful relationship with you.
St. Francis of Assisi, pray for us!
