My name is Kristy and I am the coordinator for Catechists within our parish. If you don’t know, Catechists are regular people like you and me who go into public schools and teach Special Religious Education (or scripture as it is commonly known).
With COVID-19, we have lost a number of our Catechists who are in the “at risk” group. They are no longer comfortable going into classrooms. This has left us with many gaps across our 3 public schools (Northbridge Public, Willoughby Public and Willoughby Girls). Unless we can fill those gaps, we are in real danger of not being able to deliver scripture at these schools.
If you are interested in becoming a Catechist, we need you now! There is training provided online. the materials are all provided for you and are incredibly easy to use. We are looking for people to start in term 3 on either Tuesday morning (Northbridge) or Wednesday morning (Willoughby).
The older generation has done a great job in building the parish and the programs we offer and now they need us to take over. If you want to have a chat about it, please email me CCD@LNS.ORG.AU. I’d love to tell you more about it!
