Catechist Sunday – 5th February, 2017

February 9, 2017

Sunday, 5th February, 2017 is Catechist Sunday. During the 9.00am Mass at St Francis Xavier’s Church, Arncliffe, the State School Catechists from our
twinned-parishes will be commissioned for this year.

Being a catechist is a most rewarding ministry. As baptised Christians, each one of us is called to proclaim the Good News in our daily lives: in thought, word and action. This is especially true in the anti-religious climate of our times.

This year we recognise the commitment of the following catechists and we congratulate them as they receive certificates to mark their long service:

Arncliffe Dawn Petersen 15 Years
Rockdale Daisy Calalang 5 Years
Bexley Venka Pera 5 Years

We thank all those involved in the Catechetical Ministry in our parishes, through being a catechist, an assistant catechist or a prayer partner. These wonderful people represent us all as they share the love of Jesus and the importance of faith with the young ones in State Schools.
If you would like to join in this ministry, please contact the Parish Office.

Following Mass, there will be morning tea in St Francis Xavier’s Hall. All welcome.
