Heart of the Catechist Opportunities
This workshop is based on an address from Pope Francis to the International Congress on Catechesis in September of 2013. We will address the importance to catechists and their value to the New Evangelization, for ministering to those on the margins. Three workshops are upcoming. Please encourage your catechists to join us at one of the events... OR...call me to schedule the 2/2.5 hour workshop at your parish/PCA.
- April 1 from 9 - 11:30AM at Our Lady of Good Counsel, Endicott - FLYER
- April 29 from 10AM-12PM at Parish of Eastern Broome (St. Mary, Kirkwood) - FLYER

Here is an idea from pinterest:
Family Prayer Big Idea
This idea is a way to encourage families to pray using tangible items that make prayer fun. I have a pdf of ideas to put in the prayer bag. You can use all of or some of them at one event. Or, you can start with 3 or 4 items and have the students return the next week to get another prayer activity. You can be creative with this. You can also make seasonal prayer bags for Lent or Advent. Below you will find the pdf for the prayer activities. I also included the pdf with the template for the "Squares" prayer activity.
During our April 20/21 meeting we will be experiencing a presentation on Healing and Hope: This presentation will be shared at several different venues and times during the week following Easter. You will find to flyers associated with presentation share here. I have created a specific flyer for the catechetical ministry see link FLYER as well as a flyer for the general population of your parishes. See FLYER
Please invite your catechist and others to joins us. All the events are open to everyone.
