The last year or so has been quite a challenge when it has come to catechesis in our parishes. If there has been a benefit to the pandemic it is that we are all far more adept at doing things on-line. Therefore we continue this new venture gathering catechists, experienced and inexperienced, to meet on-line to share ideas and to possibly receive a little bit of formation at the same time. These meetings will ensure a crossover of deaneries so that good practice can be shared across the diocese. The dates are below. If you are unable to attend the meeting related to their deanery they are free to join another. The boundaries are fluid.
