Through prayer, study, and professional development we invite people to a personal and intentional relationship with Jesus Christ.

Celebrating Catechetical Sunday

page CatecheticalSunday2021This year, Catechetical Sunday will be celebrated on September 19, 2021. The theme for this year’s celebration is “Say the Word and My Soul Shall be Healed.”

Catechetical Sunday is a wonderful opportunity for parishes 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.

Here are some free resources to help catechists and the community of faith rededicate themselves to this mission.
