St. Therese Novena - Day Three (Monday, Sept 25)

Loving God, you gave St. Therese the ability to see You in the ordinary routine of each day.  Help me to be aware of your presence in the everyday events of my life.

I see you, Lord.  Help me to see you more!

I trust you, Lord.  Help me to trust you more!

I love you, Lord.  Help me to love you more!

The Religious Education!

On Sunday, September 10th, our Religious Education students spent the morning in the classroom with their respective catechists for our annual Safe Environment Training session. Our catechists, volunteers, and all CCST staff have a great responsibility to ensure the safety of our students and we take this responsibility very seriously. It is our primary concern that our students are able to recognize dangerous situations and respond to them appropriately. We remember what Jesus once said, “Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.” (Matthew 25:40) We hope our children use Jesus’ message to remind themselves that they should be treated with nothing but respect and should return that to their brothers and sisters in Christ.                       - Jaclyn Sakamoto

ABOUT CATECHETICAL SUNDAY


 Why do we celebrate Catechetical Sunday?
In 1935, the Vatican published On the Better Care and Promotion of Catechetical Education, a document that asks every country to acknowledge the importance of the Church’s teaching ministry and to honor those who serve the Christian community as catechists. For the first few years after Catechetical Sunday was established, national catechetical congresses were held in conjunction with the celebration. Beginning in 1971, the USCCB’s Department of Education began producing materials to help parishes celebrate the event at the local level. When the Committee on Catechesis, now named the Committee of Evangelization and Catechesis, was named by the Conference as a standing Committee, it continued to publish Catechetical Sunday materials each year. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has designated the third Sunday in September as Catechetical Sunday.
Those whom the community has designated to serve as catechists will be called forth to be commissioned for their ministry. 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. Catechetical Sunday is an opportunity for all to rededicate themselves to this mission as a community of faith.
Why do we have a special day set aside to commission catechists?
Catechesis is a distinct and special ministry in the Church. As the Catechism of the Catholic Church makes clear, “Catechesis is intimately bound up with the whole of the Church’s life . . . her inner growth and correspondence with God’s plan depend essentially on catechesis” (no. 7). This ministry of teaching in the name of the Church has a profound dignity, which is why catechists are formally commissioned by the Church. It is only fitting that we set aside a day to highlight this ministry and invite the entire church community to think about our responsibility to share our faith with others
