Catechist Group

Catechist group is a ministry of the Church; one that is both challenging and very rewarding. It is a ministry where we are all challenged to grow in faith, to understand and explain the teachings of our Church better. Our prayer lives becomel more stronger. And, most importantly, we alll come to know the Lord Jesus in a new and more personal way.

The Second Vatican Council gave it's in (1962-65), as "catechesis" a word that comes from the Greek which means "to echo". A catechist is called by the Church to "echo" or to "reflect" for
others the life-giving truths and saving message of Jesus and the Church. The origin of this calling can be found in the gospel of St. Matthew (28:19-20): 'Go therefore, and make disciples of all nations. Baptize them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Teach them to carry out all that I have commanded you.' Because we take this command of the Lord seriously, catechists need to learn and to prepare for this special calling.

One of the most important things a catechist does is explain the mystery of God's presence in our lives. God's presence is revealed in many ways: in nature, in the Mass and sacraments, in friends and family life and in you! Catechists invite and inspire the next generation of Catholic Christians to live lives of holiness, integrity and service.
