Family Catechesis in Newfoundland and Labrador

Corner Brook and Labrador diocese to bring awareness, education to parishes

 By Catherine (Kay) Jordan

The Diocese of Corner Brook and Labrador in Newfoundland and Labrador continues to promote Family Catechesis and bring awareness and education to parishes. We will continue to meet with all those involved in any form of catechesis, religious education and sacramental preparation in our parishes.

This year, we are implementing a new catechetical resource for Kindergarten to Grade 6 in the diocese. With the introduction of a new resource, we anticipate increased requests for assistance from parishes.

The Religious Education of Youth is something that still needs a consistent focus. We are in the process of critiquing programs and adapting them to our diocese.

Sacramental preparation for Confirmation is in this age group for most of our parishes, and we offer retreats to those being confirmed.

Catherine (Kay) Jordan is director of the Office of Evangelization and Catechesis in the Diocese of Corner Brook and Labrador.
