I’m just giving early notice of event for all Catechists throughout the Diocese. The annual Catechists’ Day of Renewal will be held at English Martyrs, York, on Saturday 15th October.

This is a day designed for everyone working in catechesis, irrespective of the age group that one works with. The invitation is extended to all, whether commissioned or not, whether experienced or novice.

I’m delighted that this year our keynote speaker and facilitator will be Fr David Roberts from the Shrewsbury Diocese, where he is Director of Parish and Adult Formation. His topic will focus upon catechesis and 21st Century culture.

Fr David is a superb speaker, so it promises to be a really worthwhile day. Please put the date in your diaries – further details will follow.
