East Birmingham Deanery in collaboration with the diocesan Ethnic Chaplaincies presents:

Day for Catechists
Saturday 25 September 2021
10am - 4pm

St Ambrose Barlow
Lakey Lane
Hall Green
B28 8QU

The day aims to update current Catechists and introduce candidates for this Ministry in light of the new Catechetical Directory.

Speakers for the day include Fr Jan Nowotnik, Director of Mission for the Catholic Bishops' Conference of England and Wales, as well as Maryvale Institute's own Dr Amanda Orchard, Director of the Centre for Catechesis and Adult Formation. Dr Orchard will deliver a session on Ongoing Training and Preparation for Catechists. Former Maryvale MA student Margaret Wickware will speak on Family Catechesis.

Archbishop Bernard Longley said: "The programme for the Day for Catechists looks excellent and I am sure that the deanery and ethnic chaplaincy catechists will gain much from sharing in this day together – not least by being able to share and learn about the complementary approaches to catechesis which may characterise different traditions."

Bookings are invited via your Parish Priest to the co-ordinator of the day, Mgr Daniel McHugh by Tuesday 21 September. The cost for the day will be £20 per person, to cover travel and stipend for the visiting speakers, venue and refreshments.
