Calling all Catechists

Sarah Adams

Director for the Department for Adult Education and Evangelisation

Just a reminder, there is a new venture to gather catechists experience and inexperienced to meet on-line to share ideas and to possibly receive a little bit of formation at the same time. This would be an hour’s session once every six weeks or so – without any commitment expected. Come when you can. What I would hope is that you would encourage new people to come along and gain in their own confidence by hearing others talk.

 

These meetings will ensure a cross over of deaneries so that good practice can be shared across the diocese. The first date for these are as follows: If you are unable to attend the meeting related to your deanery feel free to join another. The boundaries are fluid.

To participate in the conversation register at – [email protected] with the name of your deanery so that we can send you a meeting invitation for the correct date. These meetings will be via Teams. If you have not used TEAMS before I would advise downloading the Microsoft Teams app beforehand. A Microsoft Teams invite to the session will be sent out a few days before each meeting. Any problems, please let us know.

 

If you have any questions or would like to know more about these meetings please do get in touch with me: [email protected]
