Catechist Newsletter 4,  xmas 2021-1.jpg

Dear Catechists and friends

Welcome to our Term 4 Newsletter for 2021!  We trust that all is going well for you as you reach out  to children and families through your ministry.  In this Newsletter, you are invited to reflect upon our call to be missionary disciples.   

A letter from the Archbishop, together with resources that we have prepared, has been sent out to parishes regarding the Blessing of the Cribs in each parish this year on the 3rd Sunday of Advent—the Advent Sunday of Joy!!  Please encourage families to participate.  We hope that in 2022 we will be able to prepare resources for a few events for parish use. 

We will continue to prepare resources to enhance the Sacramental process and email to you in due course.

Soon parishes will receive notice for the Rite of Commissioning of Catechists and Youth Ministers to be held in each parish in February.  Please keep an eye out for the date and time in your parish and encourage all involved across school and parish to this ceremony.   

With every wish for a wonderful Christmas for you and your loved ones.

Sr Jenny Seal and Amanda Razon
