Diocesan Day for Catechists 2018

The annual Southwark diocesan day for catechists took place at St George’s Cathedral and the Amigo Hall on Saturday 22 September 2018. Catechists from dozens of parishes came to participate in workshops on a range of catechetical and liturgical themes and to share what they do in their parishes with each other. The date for next year is 21 September 2019.

Below you will find an audio recording of the keynote talk by Fr John Hemer MHM, lecturer at Allen Hall Seminary; plus the slides, photos and other files from the workshops on sacramental preparation, safeguarding, children’s liturgy and catechesis with those with disabilities. Evangelisation and adult formation sessions were also delivered and the notes are below. We would like to record our gratitude to the workshop leaders from the SVP and from the Liverpool and Westminster Archdioceses as well as diocesan colleagues who made the day such a success.
