Catechetical Sunday- September 17, 2023

Please know of my thoughts and prayers for you and your catechists who have offered your “fiats” in participating in this most sacred and time-honored ministry.
This year’s theme, “Come to me all you who labor and are burdened" Matthew 11:28. This year's theme will highlight the invitation we receive from the Lord Jesus to follow Him and the promise that He doesn’t want to add to our burdens; he wants to lighten them.
