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.

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.
