 Enlisting Witnesses for Jesus Christ

This year, the Church will celebrate Catechetical Sunday on September 16, 2018. The 2018 theme will be "Enlisting Witnesses for Jesus Christ." 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.

Should you have any questions please call Ana Cardenas, Director of Religious Education, at 978-685-1111 ext. 30.

A Prayer for Catechists
O God our Heavenly Father, you have given us the gift of these catechists to be heralds of the Gospel to our parish family.
We lift them up to you in thanksgiving and intercede for them concerning their hopes and needs.
May we be attentive to the presence of your Word in them, a Word that lifts up and affirms, calls forth and challenges, is compassionate and consoles.
We pray that our parish family will always be blessed with those who have responded to the call to share in Christ’s prophetic mission as catechists. May we, too, be open to the universal call to service that Christ addresses to all of his disciples, contributing our gifts to the communion of faith, the Church.
We ask this in Jesus’ name.

Confirmando Testigos Para Jesucristo

Este año, la Iglesia celebrará el domingo catequético el 16 de septiembre de 2018 bajo el lema "Confirmando Testigos Para Jesucristo." En este día, los catequistas formalmente son comisionados para el ministerio a la comunidad. El domingo catequético es una maravillosa oportunidad para reflexionar sobre el papel que desempeña cada bautizado en la entrega de la fe y en el testimonio del Evangelio. El domingo catequético es una oportunidad para rededicarse a esta misión como comunidad de fe.

Oracion por los Catequistas

Oh Dios, nuestro Padre celestial, nos has dado el don de estos catequistas para que sean heraldos del Evangelio en nuestra familia parroquial.
Los presentamos ante ti en acción de gracias e intercedemos por ellos en sus esperanzas y necesidades.
Haz que estemos atentos a la presencia de tu Palabra en ellos, una Palabra que eleve y afirme, que convoque y desafíe, que sea compasiva y consuele.
Oramos para que nuestra familia parroquial siempre sea bendecida con aquellos que han respondido al llamado a compartir la misión profética de Cristo como catequistas. Que estemos también abiertos al llamado universal al servicio que Cristo dirige a todos sus discípulos, contribuyendo con nuestros dones a la comunión de la fe, la Iglesia.
Pedimos esto en el nombre de Jesús.
