Day for Catechists

« All Events

March 9 @ 10:30 am - 3:00 pm


In this Year of Prayer, we invite parish catechists to join us for a day of workshops, witness and inspiration.

Register here (registration closes Thursday 7 March at 2:00pm).

The role you play in your parish is crucial - from running programmes like RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) and Children's Liturgy, supporting your priest, and answering questions on faith issues from parishioners.

This day will renew your vocation as a catechist, and provide inspiration and tips while letting you meet and chat with fellow catechists from across the Archdiocese. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions in a friendly environment.

In workshops and talks, we will highlight baptismal and sacramental preparation, children's liturgy, lesson plans and resources...and lots more!

There will be a bookstand featuring titles for children & adults.

The Gillis Centre is located at 100 Strathearn Road, Edinburgh, EH9 1BB. There is free parking onsite (including an overspill car park at the back of St Margaret's Chapel).

The day is run by the Catechetics Commission of the Archdiocese of St Andrews & Edinburgh and we look forward to welcoming you.

Please note: registration for this event closes at 2:00pm on Thursday 7 March.
