“You did not choose me, no, I chose you: and I commissioned you to go out and bear fruit, fruit that will last”. ( John 15:16)
As we embark on our catechetical journey for 2020, this word proclaims and declares that YOU have been CHOSEN for this time and season to bring Christ to the little ones.
On Feb 1 and 2 we will celebrate Catechist Sunday at all Masses. This is the weekend we will acknowledge our 60 catechist/helpers who teach over 1100 primary school students in 6 of our local public schools. We recognise their response to their baptismal call to evangelise, the voluntary nature of their generosity, their commitment to half-hour teaching every week and
their love for the children in a work which is often unseen and unrecognised yet crucial and rewarding.
To fill all our classes we are in need of Catechists at:
GPK Edensor Park, Tuesdays, 9.00am to 10.30am – 3 sessions
Cecil Hills Primary, Wednesdays 8.50am to 10.00am – 2 sessions
Edensor Park Primary, Wednesdays at 9 am
Bonnyrigg Heights Primary, Wednesdays 11.30 to 1.05pm – 3 sessions
Green Valley Primary, Wednesdays 2.10pm to 2.50pm
Busby West Primary, Fridays 9.10am to 10.15am – 2 sessions
Being a Helper is an invaluable service, assisting the Catechist in the classroom and working as a team.
The CCD offers all catechists/ helpers a variety of support, in the form of training courses to help in what we teach, how to teach and why it has to age-appropriate, resources, Retreats and Reflection Days.
Do something of eternal significance- be a Catechist or helper! We invite you to join this mission and our wonderful JB Team .
