Come share the journey.

One of our greatest treasures of the Catholic Church is Catechesis. The ministry of the "Good News" is one of the wonderful ministries we share with families. This is a ministry of faith, active and fruitful, continuing to build foundational relationships with Jesus Christ. It is an intimate relationship with Jesus, which forms active faith lives in children and adults. Catechesis places Jesus at the center of our lives. Thus, we come to know, love and serve Christ.

Formal catechesis occurs in the parish (classes, sacramental preparation). With teachings of Sacred Scripture and the rich Tradition of the church we encounter Christ. As our faith journey grows and challenges us to become active in ministry we see all facets of parish life are catechetical.
Home life is catechetical as well. Active family faith in the home nurtures and matures discipleship. Establishing a rhythm of attending Sunday Mass weaves Christ into the fabric of family life.
Take time to reflect on the many opportunities we have had to encounter Christ through catechetical moments at the parish and at home. Continue to be aware of the Living Christ in everyday moments. Remember to thank the Lord for the blessings in your life and realize that God has a dream for each of us. It is my hope, as we share this journey together in Jesus Christ; we become challenged to active discipleship and fellowship. As a result, we carry the teachings of Jesus Christ into future generations through word and deed!

We are the future and the future is bright!
