Catechetical Sunday 2013
The third Sunday of September is annually set aside and designated as Catechetical Sunday. This year, Catechetical Sunday falls on Sunday, September 15th.
During the 10:00 AM Mass at Christ the Redeemer, Catechists, Volunteers, Parents, Children in the Religious Education program, along with the entire community, will have an opportunity to rededicate themselves to the mission of the church along with catholic communities of faith around the nation.
Each year a theme is chosen to help the faithful focus their attentions on the church's mission. This year the theme is Open the Door of Faith. More information about Catechetical Sunday and this theme is available at the USCCB Website. The website also contains teaching and reflection materials for catechists and families.
We invite the parish to come celebrate the start of our Religious Education Year with this Catechetical Sunday celebration at the 10:00 AM Mass. The RE Year Kick-Off will follow with a short presentation in Atonement Hall after the Mass. Families will have an opportunity to meet this year's Catechists and Volunteers.
More Catechists and Volunteers are still needed to help out with this event and the RE Program. Please contact Jay Cuasay or Harvesta Greene Williams at 703-430-0811.
Save the Date! Sunday, September 15 @ 10:00 AM Mass.
