Last night, I spent the evening with about 50 catechists from the O’Hare cluster of parishes (northwest side of Chicago and northwest suburbs) and had a wonderful time talking about the Old Testament with them.
In the course of the evening, I met 2 catechists who have been serving in this ministry for over 30 years each! One had been a catechist for 33 years and another for 38 years! What a wonderful witness they were to the half-dozen or so brand new catechists who were there. It was especially inspiring to see that, after all these years, they were present at a catechist formation event, eager to learn, modeling the fact that faith formation is life-long!
Thanks to the DREs and catechists of the O’Hare cluster for a wonderful evening of faith formation…the Spirit was truly present and active!
