Blessings from the Sheepfold!
With the recent developments in the COVID-19 situation, it looks like that we would not be conducting face-to-face catechetical sessions any time soon.
As per Office For Catechesis' recommendation, the Secondary level catechists tried out Zoom as a platform for online catechesis and found it to be suitable. Though online catechesis can never be a replacement for face-to-face catechesis, we are open to look for new ways to do things to minister to our youths in this trying period.
We are pleased to announce that we are launching our online Secondary Level Weekend Catechetical Program, starting on the 4th/5th of April 2020. The sessions will be conducted online via Zoom during the scheduled time for the Weekend Catechetical sessions:
3.30pm - 5.30pm (Saturdays)
9.45am -11.45am (Sundays)
As Zoom is a pretty new platform for all of us, we ask for patience and understanding as we proceed with the implementation.
For the children in the Primary Level Weekend Catechetical Program, we will continue to email links to Children's Masses and other suitable materials for weekly reflection on the Sunday Gospel Readings. We are currently exploring other novel ways to bring the children closer to the Lord and will provide updates as and when they are ready.
We provide formation for our parish children and youth of school-going age through our primary and secondary level programmes as follows:
