Catechetical Sunday: Encountering the Risen Christ
August 27 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
This September 15, we invite all parishes and parishioners to celebrate Catechetical Sunday. This year’s theme is “Stay With Us.” Within the Archdiocese of Detroit specifically, we will focus on Unleash the Gospel with emphasis on “Encountering the Risen Christ.”
Catechetical Sunday is celebrated throughout the US on the third Sunday of September. Catechists throughout the country are commissioned on that day, and the USCCB provides resources for promotion in the parish such as prayer cards and flyers.
Each pastor, staff member, catechist, Catholic School teacher, parent, grandparent, guardian, and the entire parish community are reminded of their roles in passing on the faith to their children, and all of our brothers and sisters in RCIA.
