Diocesan Day for Catechists 2016

On Saturday 15th October, the feast of St Teresa of Avila, we celebrated a wonderful Year of Mercy Jubilee for Catechists at the Cathedral. Bishop Philip led the pilgrimage through the Holy Door for around 100 Catechists from across the Diocese and gave a talk on Evangelising Catechesis.

After an uplifting Mass, the bishop presented the Maryvale Certificate in Catechesis to five students who had successfully completed the course and also the Bachelor of Divinity with First Class Honours to Sister Mary Catherine, OP.

After lunch, the Catechists had the opportunity to take part in two workshops to assist them in useful skills for their ministry within the Diocese.
