Commissioning of Catechists, Corpus Christi Parish St. John’s NL

At 5:00 p.m. today, Corpus Christi Parish on Waterford Bridge Road, held its Vigil Mass, at which time Archbishop Currie commissioned Catechists “from various parishes within the Archdiocese of St. John's for their Catechetical ministry in their parishes this year.”

As I often do before Mass at various parishes throughout the Archdiocese, I held signs, as shown in this posting, outside the church just before 5PM Mass.

The Archbishop noted this event in his blog and rightly indicated:

I pray for all Catechetical Ministers who lead young people and their families to a deeper understanding of their faith and the Sacraments by what they say and how they say it as well as by who they are and how they live.

Thank you for teaching and empowering parents, grandparents and caregivers to hlep their families grow daily in their faith and to fulfill what Pope Benedict XV1 stated, "Christian parents are still called to give a credible witness of their Christian faith and hope. They need to ensure that God's call and the good news of Christ will reach their children with the utmost clarity and authenticity."
