Twenty-Fifth Sunday In Ordinary Time

Catechetical Sunday 2021

From the US Conference of Catholic Bishops

This year’s Catechetical Sunday theme is: “Say the Word and My Soul Shall Be Healed.”  These words prepare us to receive the Body of Christ in Communion.  May we be open to the presence of the risen Christ who invites us to be his witnesses.

Today we reflect on the day of our Baptism when each of us, like Jesus, came up out of the water to go on mission to teach the Gospel message.  There are always opportunities for you in our Life-Long Faith Formation Ministry … so give us a call to see what the Lord has in mind for you. 

A Prayer for Catechists

Loving Father, we pray today for our catechists.

 We thank you for their gift of ministry in your Church.

 Grant them your wisdom that they may grow in the understanding and teaching of your Word. Grant them also your love that they may be fruitful heralds of your Word and lead others to love you.

Pour forth your Holy Spirit upon them to grant them wisdom about what is important; knowledge of the truths of faith; understanding of their meaning; right judgement about how to apply them in life; courage to persevere even in the face of adversity; reverence before all that is sacred and holy; and that loving zeal which leads others to a transforming encounter with your Son.

 We pray this through Christ, our Lord. Amen
