Newly Commissioned Parish Catechists

On Friday 8th November 2019 in the Cathedral of Ss Anne and Mary in Cork city, Bishop Fintan Gavin (Bishop of Cork & Ross) and Bishop William Crean  (Bishop of Cloyne) commissioned Parish Catechists for mission in their respective dioceses. It is the culmination of two years of study and preparation for the Catechists, many of whom are already involved in faith formation in their parishes. They were surrounded by family and fellow parishioners in celebrating this milestone in their own personal lives, but also in the lives of the faith communities from which they come. We wish them every blessing as they are now local witnesses to the importance of faith formation in the life of the Church. Please God many more will feel called to follow in their footsteps in the years ahead. Should you feel drawn to the work, please contact Fr Sean Corkery, Director of Adult Faith Formation on
