The ministry of CATECHESIS is one where we are called to literally “echo and re-echo the GOOD NEWS of Jesus Christ!” A CATECHIST is one who serves as a witness for Christ in ordinary things that occur in everyday living.
As Pope Francis tells us, “A Catechist is one who is called by God in very simple ways, to lead all people to encounter the Living Christ!…Catechists and ALL of us are called to proclaim the announcement of God’s love, and participate fully in the Life of Christ!”
St. John XXIII has always been blessed with a wonderful group volunteer Catechists who are dedicated to sharing and teaching The Faith to our Parish children. Their time and efforts are a blessing to us all. And NOW is YOUR TIME….have you ever considered “pitching in,” and helping with the process. As we all know…many hands make light the work. So why not consider being part of this process…on behalf of your children….. your parish family….. and your God???
CATECHISTS ARE NEEDED
If you feel the Lord has blessed you with an ability to communicate His truths to young people….We need you!!!
