Catechetical Sunday on September 18, 2016


Prayer: The Faith Prayed

“This year, the Church will celebrate Catechetical Sunday on September 18, 2016 and will focus on the theme “Prayer: The Faith Prayed.” Those who 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.”  *Excerpt from the USCCB.

As a resource, NCCL has provided a Catechetical Sunday webpage with various digital tools, provided by corporate members of NCCL, which seeks to assist catechists in the ongoing journey to deepen their prayer lives.  The theme for Catechetical Sunday, Prayer: The Faith Prayed, is a reflective theme for catechists to undertake in their personal journey of faith during this particular catechetical year, starting September 18, 2016.  As a daily reminder, NCCL is selling pins for catechetical leaders, with the word “prayer” to remind catechists of this commitment to nourish their prayer lives all year. The National Conference for Catechetical Leadership is grateful for your dedication to catechesis.
