Catechist Enrichment Day – Inspiring Young Disciples to Live and Share Their Faith
September 24, 2016 @ 8:45 AM - 3:30 PM$25
Every disciple is sent forth as a missionary to proclaim the Good News to others in word and action.
“Missionary initiation” is the sixth “essential task of catechesis” mentioned in the General Directory for
Catechesis. Our keynote presentation, “Inspiring Young Disciples to Live and Share Their Faith,” will
be offered by Dr. Joseph White, a veteran catechist and catechetical author who will provide participants
with practical ways to help children, teens, and families live and share their faith, so they, too, can be
authentic witnesses of the Christian life. The Catechist Enrichment day, offered for all parish catechists,
parish youth ministers and parish faith formation leaders, will also include breakout sessions in the
afternoon to further enhance the catechists’ own skills and faith life. Diocese of Saginaw catechists who pre-register for”Basic Catechist Certification: Mission and Methods” will participate in the general morning sessions and specific afternoon breakouts, resulting in their certificate at the end of the day.
