Day for Catechists

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.

Reflection Day for Diploma in Catechetics Students

A day for students taking our Diploma in Catechetics to get together to pray and learn more about the Catholic faith in a relaxed informal setting. Time to be confirmed.

Called & Gifted Workshop

Discover the unique work of love to which God has called you. Register for this free workshop here.

The Called and Gifted Workshop is for YOU.

God is calling you to a unique purpose in life, a work of love that only you can do.

We will help you identify your charisms (spiritual gifts) and begin to discern God’s call through the Called and Gifted Workshop. You have received gifts in Baptism and Confirmation through which God intends His love to reach others.

You will learn:

• The five steps of discerning the charisms that God has given you how they can change your life.

• how discerning your charisms can change the world and help spread the Gospel

• how discerning and using our charisms together can help transform and renew our parishes.

The workshop will also look at the fascinating ancient teachings of the Church on how the charisms of the Holy Spirit work in your life and in the life of your parish community. We will also delve into the signs and characteristics of 24 of the most common charisms of the Holy Spirit.

Come and discover these charisms in you! Register here.

This event is jointly hosted by the Archdiocese's Catechetics Commission and the Catherine of Siena Institute in Colorado. Queries? SrAnna.Marie@staned.org.uk
