Catechetical Sunday 2018

Catechetical Sunday is observed in the Church on the third Sunday in September and is a celebration of catechists and all teachers of the Catholic faith. Each year has a theme. The theme this year is "Enlisting Witnesses For Jesus Christ." This weekend, at the 11 am Mass Fr. Jim will offer a special blessing for these individuals.

We celebrate these men and woman because of their willingness to come forward and for the openness to share their faith. Typically, we think about our Catechists being those sharing about their faith and teaching about it to our young people, but being a Catechist is not just about ministering to children and teens. Catechists lead the RCIA (our Becoming Catholic process), facilitate Bible Studies, Marriage & Baptism preparation and more.

The word “catechist” has its roots in a Greek word that means “to sound” or to echo (like whales and dolphins). The Catechist teaches by word of mouth through dialog and a sharing of their faith. It is this sharing of the faith from our heart that distinguishes it from the role of being strictly teacher. The teachings of the Church take root and are understood best when our faith lives in our heart in a relationship with Jesus first and foremost. It is not strictly content oriented, but is a handing over of the faith one person to another, one generation to another from one’s heart.

The Church term, "Domestic Church" refers to our homes and is where the faith is lived, understood and embraced the most. It is in the home where the seeds of faith are best sown and nurtured. That is why parents are referred to as the "Primary Catechist" for their children. Catechetical Sunday is a day to bring focus on the role each person and family has, by virtue of Baptism, in handing on the faith and being a witness to the Gospel. But it is also a day we set aside to thank our Catechists for coming forward.

A BIG THANKS to all of our Catechists!!!
