I received from the Lord what I also handed on to you.
Sunday, September 20, we recognized Catechetical Sunday along with the US Bishops and other Catholic Churches throughout the country.
In 2020, the theme for Catechetical Sunday and the Faith Formation (Religious Education) year is “I received from the Lord what I also handed on to you.” On this day, catechists are formally commissioned for ministry to the community. Catechetical Sunday is a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the role that each baptized person plays in handing on the faith and being a witness to the Gospel. Catechetical Sunday is an opportunity for all to rededicate themselves to this mission as a community of faith.
Here at St. Catherine's, we take it seriously that parents are the primary catechists of their children. During this time of pandemic, this role means more than ever! Our goal this year is to provide parents with resources to simply, yet profoundly, share their faith with their children, to "hand on to them" what they have "received from the Lord." We also hope to continue to provide parents with small moments of adult faith formation for them in the hopes it will give them more to "hand on" to their children.
