Catechetical Ministry

IS GOD CALLING YOU TO THE CATECHETICAL MINISTRY?

Serving as a catechist is more than volunteerism.  When one serves as a catechist he or she “echoes” God’s Word.  The catechetical ministry offers you the opportunity to grow in faith and to strengthen your relationship with the Lord.  Please consider becoming a catechist.  The Elementary Faith Formation Office seeks teaches of religion for the following grade levels:

Mondays – 4:30-5:45pm      Tuesdays – 4:30-5:45pm

Gr. 1 – 1 catechist              Gr. 1 – 2 catechists
Gr. 3 – 1 catechist              Gr. 3 – 1 catechist
Gr. 4 – 2 catechists
Gr. 5 – 1 catechist
Gr. 6 – 1 catechist

Substitute catechists…….

Can’t commit to sharing your faith weekly with the children of our parish?  The EFF office often needs substitute teachers of religion.  We make this as easy and stress free as possible for “subs.”  Contact the EFF office 667-2440 x346,  347 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.

RCIA - Be Filled with the Spirit

Are you, or have you at some point thought about becoming Catholic? Maybe you have tagged along with someone going to Sunday Mass and have had a "this is where I belong" feeling while there. If so, why not ask the questions and get the answers to help you decide.  In the RCIA program this is called the Inquiry Phase of discernment and is taking place now.  If you are interested, we would love to talk with you. For more information please contact Barbara Long at 856-810-0881.

Question of the Week

Week of August 20, 2017

Matthew 15:21-28 

Adults:

Have you ever benefited from being persistent in a situation where someone's mind seemed "made up"? How or from where did you find the courage?

We offer this form of contemplative sharing for pondering Scripture while considering the question, and for the faith sharing which follows.

-  Listen/ Read (Lectio): Ponder God’s word and listen for what touches your heart.
-  Meditate (Meditatio): Notice what you notice. Allow God’s word to resonate in you.
-  Speak/Share (Oratio): Prayerfully share with the group your thoughts and feelings.
-  Rest in God’s presence (Contemplatio): Notice God’s presence and be still, surrounded by God’s love.


Teens:

Have you ever made a quick judgement about someone that changed the more you came to understand them or their situation?


Children:

Have you ever been told "no," but because of the way you responded, the answer changed to a "yes"?
