Amarillo—Saturday, April 16 is the final opportunity to attend the Ministry of Catechesis course, according to Sister María Elena Ferrer, SSND, coordinator of the Diocesan Office of Faith Formation.
The April 16 course will be offered from 9:30am to 12:30pm at St. Anthony’s Church, 115 North 25 Mile Ave. Father Ken Keller, pastor of Holy Family Church, Nazareth, will be the instructor.
The Ministry of Catechesis course is the sixth in a series of courses for the Faith Formation Basic Course, which began its second go-round in the Fall of 2013 with Introduction to the Scriptures, followed by Prayer—The Four Types of Prayer; Morality; the Sacraments of Initiation; and the Sacraments of Healing, which was offered last fall.
“There is no charge for this course,” said Sister María Elena. “All catechists in the Diocese of Amarillo who have yet to attend the Ministry of Catechesis course are expected to be in Hereford on April 16. We ask that participants bring a Bible, pen and pad.”
