5/19/19 – GRATITUDE TO OUR CATECHISTS: As another year of our Religious Formation Program comes to a close, a word of gratitude needs to be expressed to our catechists: Tina Boyd, Lisa MacKay, Patty DiNatalie, Kathleen Mychajliw, Hal and Nancy Lane, and Jillian Schmidt. These dedicated Catechists truly shared the Good News of Jesus not just by how they taught the young people of our parish but also – and far more importantly – by the very example of their lives. Parents, of course, are the first teachers in the ways of Faith. But our Catechists certainly assist parents in a common goal of helping our youth grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ and their understanding of the Teachings of our Catholic Church. All of this is accomplished under the careful supervision of our Director of Faith Formation, Bob Rybarczyk. If anyone is interested in learning more about the Ministry of a Catechist or feels a “calling” to become involved in the Religious Education Program of our parish, please contact Bob Rybarczyk (688- 1380) or speak with Father Peter. You will find the ministry to be a true grace in your life as you prepare our youth to become the next generation of leaders, servants and ministers in our parish and our Church.
