Basic Certification for Catechists a Success! - Catholic Church of Montreal

Basic Certification for Catechists a Success!


On Saturday, September 21, 2013 the Office for Faith Education welcomed over 60 new and returning catechists from 18 different parishes to participate in basic catechetical training.

The full-day retreat offered them the opportunity to learn the "Be My Disciples" (Faith First) tools, how to manage children (and, at times, their parents), catechetical techniques, and the spirituality of the catechist.  

The two leaders, Beverley Caughlin, PCL at St. John Fisher, and Joanne Murray, PCL at St. Edmund of Canterbury, worked hard to provide a day of learning and growth interspersed with fun activities and icebreakers. They did a fantastic job!  

The Holy Spirit's presence was evident as the group worked together to complete their workshops, especially when they shared their stories, experiences, and wisdom.  

We thank all our catechists for agreeing to journey with us and the children this year, and we offer the following new ones our heartfelt congratulations for earning their basic training certificates!
