Catechetical Sunday

Dear Friends,

John T. Denny, OSA, Pastor

Our Bishops have designated September 21st for the nation’s annual celebration of “Catechetical Sunday.” At the 9:30am Mass, we will commission our parish’s catechists. The words “catechist” and “catechism” come from a Greek word meaning “instruction.” Catechetical Sunday acknowledges, in every parish across the nation, those who instruct others in our faith.

Our parish catechists include both the members of the RCIA team and those who assist with the Religious Education of our children. Under the direction of Mrs. Karen Carey, parishioners instruct our Religious Education children in the tenets of our faith and prepare them to receive the Sacraments of First Reconciliation, First Eucharist, and Confirmation. The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) team is led by Sr. Anne Woodeshick, RSM. The RCIA program invites those who are considering joining the Catholic Church to learn more. It also serves adult Catholics who desire to better understand their faith.

One of the Eucharistic Prayers reminds us to give thanks that others have “handed on to us” the faith. We have the same obligation to do so. We are blessed here at Our Mother of Good Counsel to have such dedicated catechists. In the name of the entire parish, I thank all of you.

If anyone is able to assist, in any way, with our catechetical programs please either email Karen or Sr. Anne or give them a call here at the Parish Office.

God bless!
Father Denny
