Diocesan Day for Catechists – Saturday 28 September 2019
On behalf of our new Archbishop, I would like to invite your catechists and children’s liturgists to attend the annual diocesan
Day for Catechists on Saturday 28 September 2019 at St George’s Cathedral, Southwark, SE1 6HR. This Day is for all the Catechists of the diocese, including those involved in Children’s Liturgy of the Word and the RCIA process.
This year, as with last year, we feature an additional workshop slot and a catered sandwich lunch.
The programme is as follows:
Arrivals, registrations and tea/coffee
11:00am Welcome and practical notices
Address: The Gospel of St Matthew with Canon Luis Ruscillo
12noon Session 1 (choice of workshop)
Lunch and Bookstall
1:45pm Session 2 (choice of workshop)
Session 3 (choice of workshop)
4:00pm Commissioning Mass to be celebrated by Archbishop John Wilson.
Along with the lunch,
tea and coffee will also be provided and a Bookshop will be available.
In order that your catechists do not miss this important training day, please encourage them to put the date in their diaries now. You may wish to photocopy this letter
for their information. The usual parish Booking Form will be sent out to parishes on 3 September 2019. The cost is just £10 per person, which should be paid by the parish.
Like the Archbishop, I very much hope to see your catechists
(and you, should you wish to attend, perhaps to concelebrate at the Mass) on Saturday 28 September at the Cathedral.
With our prayers and cordial regards,
Dr Mark Nash
Director of the Centre for Catholic Formation
