Catechetical Sunday- September 18, 2022

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, “This is my body given for you, invites us to reflect on the Eucharist as the source and summit of the Christian life.
