The next series starts October 2017, designed for the formation of the catechists of our diocese. The formation course is aimed at forming new catechists as well as supporting existing and “well-seasoned” catechists, too. This series is to be hosted at Clifton Cathedral, Bristol.
The course will run on a Wednesday evening, once each month through to July 2018. Starting Wednesday 4 October, the course includes the diocesan gathering on Saturday 30 June 2018. There are some engaging and stimulating facilitators for each session. The session on 4 October is designed to set the scene for the monthly sessions that follow. There’s plenty of parking at the cathedral and the Apostle Room easily found from the car park beneath the cathedral. Sessions start at 7.30pm with refreshments from 7pm.
Further information can be found on the Catechists’ Course booklet below. Those wishing to take part in the series will need to send their registration details to Alexander House, 160 Pennywell Road, Bristol, BS5 0TX by the beginning of October. There is a minimal cost to the course of £50 which may be subsidised by your parish. Cheques are to made payable to CCDTR. The details are on the booking form.
As we are encouraged to deepen the faith handed on to us and the faith we profess, the hope is that this series will only encourage and enthuse those who take part in it to be confident in the faith they seek to hand on to others.
