Catechist Newsletter 1 2021 final-1.jpg

Dear Catechists and friends

Welcome to 2021!  Welcome to all who are new to Children’s Ministry.  We hope that following the call to be the echo of God’s word in the lives of children and their families through faith formation is a rewarding one for your own life and one which will enhance your own faith journey.

Welcome also to Amanda Razon who has joined the team!  Amanda is looking forward to meeting you either in person or via email—and possibly via some video connection in time!

You may have noticed that the Family and Parish-Based Catechesis Office has a change of name to Family Faith Formation Team.  The work of the team still focuses around the Sacraments of Initiation of Children, Family Catechesis, Liturgy of the Word with Children and Religious Education Faith Formation for children within the parish.  An aspect that is highlighted in this work is faith formation for all members of the family.   

The Annual Archdiocesan Catechist Commissioning Mass took place on 28 February this year at the Cathedral, presided by Archbishop Patrick O’Regan. It was a wonderful celebration with the highlight of two papal blessing recipients for many years of service in Children’s Ministry in the Archdiocese of Adelaide.  We congratulate and ask for God’s blessing on  Esther Jordan and Sr Cecilia Thi Manh De op.

If you would like to receive this newsletter or any other communication via email, please let us know.  Our details are on the back of this newsletter.

With every blessing for the Season.

Sr Jenny Seal and  Amanda Razon
