The following thoughts on Catechetical Sunday were written by Father Bob Hoefler and printed in his “From the Pastor” column in the Saint Francis of Assisi Catholic Church bulletin.
It’s Catechetical Sunday. Take a moment to offer a special prayer for those people who were catechists to you. Maybe it was parents; maybe it was grandparents or godparents; maybe it was a teacher in school or religious education. Or maybe it was a priest or a sister or deacon. Maybe it was just someone who cared enough about you to show you what it means to live as a follower of Jesus Christ.
All are living out the words spoken at their own baptism: “As Christ was anointed Priest, Prophet, and King, so may you live always as a member of His body sharing everlasting life.”
Catechists share of their faith in everlasting life. Thank you, and God bless you!
