CATECHETICAL SUNDAY - September 15, 2019
This year, the Church will celebrate Catechetical Sunday on September 15, 2019. The 2019 theme will be
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.
THANK YOU TO ALL WHO "HAND ON THE FAITH"!
