Catechists Gathering

On Wednesday last, the catechists from across the Shrewsbury Local Pastoral Area gathered together in the Cathedral. It was the first of what will hopefully be termly meetings, bringing catechists together to share good practice, ideas and suggestions. At this first meeting Dave Fitton (Diocesan Co-ordinator for Youth Ministry) talked about the on going nature of catechesis and his vision for youth catechesis. All the catechists said it was a great opportunity to meet their colleagues from other parishes and begin to collaborate together. The Children's Liturgy catechsists even planned their first joint social gathering!
