Catechist's Corner

August 11, 2017 Emmaus Catholic Parish

One month away

I begin the year the same way, we ended, by saying THANK YOU!

Thank you for saying "yes" to the call of being a catechist!

Serving as a catechist for led me to learn more about my faith, and it was something that I was able to share and learn along side with my children.

I look forward to learning with you this year :)
