CATECHETICAL SUNDAY: The Mt. Hope Catholic Community will celebrate the commissioning of our teachers on Sunday, September 20th. While we are not having in-person classes for Grades 1-7 until it is safe to do so, our Catechists will still be involved in preparing materials for the students in our parishes.
Catechetical Sunday is a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the role that each person plays, by virtue of Baptism, in handing on the faith and being a witness to the Gospel.
The 2020 Catechetical Sunday theme is taken from St. Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians, “I Received from the Lord what I also Handed on to You.” This theme focuses on the essential work of catechesis, which is an invitation to a whole new life given by Christ Himself. It emphasizes that living faith necessitates movement, inspiring all those who hear the Word to share it as witnesses of the true and living God.
Please keep our Catechists, students and their families in your prayers as we begin this most unusual Catechetical year.
