Today the Catholic Church in the United States celebrates “Catechetical Sunday”. It is a day when we acknowledge and bless all those who have committed themselves to the faith for-mation of others. The word “catechetical” comes from a Greek word that means to echo or re- sound. Catechists are those who echo the teachings of our faith and bring them to others. Theword “catechism” is familiar as a compendium of our Catholic teachings and beliefs. All of usare called to catechize others, to share our faith, to assist others in developing their faith, and to witness to our faith by the example of our lives (evangelization) Parents, especially, have this role and responsibility for their children. Teachers in St. Viator School, Catechists in our Religious Education programs and those who volunteer in our Children’s Liturgy assist parents in this role by their work as educators and as youth ministers.
