Amarillo—Three opportunities remain to take the course on The Liturgy/La Liturgia, according to Sister María Elena Ferrer, SSND, coordinator of the Diocesan Office of Faith Formation.
While catechists in the Diocese of Amarillo are encouraged to take advantage of this on-going Faith Formation opportunity, the course is open to any and all wishing to attend.
All presentations will be taught from 9:30am to 12:30pm, according to Sister María Elena.
The Liturgy/La Liturgia course is one of eight segments in a series of courses for the Faith Formation Basic Certification, 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; Sacraments of Healing; and Ministry of Catechesis, which was offered last spring.
The remaining schedule for The Liturgy/La Liturgia:
• Saturday, Oct. 22, in the North Deanery at Sts. Peter and Paul Church, 900 Bruce in Dumas. The course will be presented in English by Monsignor Michael Colwell, JCL, pastor of St. Anthony of Padua Church, Dalhart, while Sister María Elena Ferrer will facilitate the course in Spanish; and,
• Saturday, Nov. 5, for the South Deanery at St. Anthony’s Church, 115 North 25 Mile Ave., Hereford. Father Ken Keller, pastor of Holy Family Church, Nazareth, will be the presenter.
“There is no charge for this course,” said Sister María Elena. “All catechists in the Diocese of Amarillo who need this segment are expected to attend. We want to particularly encourage catechists who need this one segment to complete their basic certification to attend. We ask that participants bring a Bible, pen and pad and choose a date that is convenient to them. Make plans to attend this course and receive your certificate of attendance.”
