Can You Help?

Yes, become a catechist!

We are in need of new scripture teachers. The following classes will be without Catholic SRE teachers in 2018 if we do not get volunteers:

  • Gordon East Public School: Tuesday 9.10-9.40am
    • Kindergarten
  • Turramurra Public School: Wednesday 9.15-9.45am AND 10.25-11.05am
    • Year 1, Year 2, Year 4 & Year 5
  • Pymble Public School: Wednesday 9.00-9.30am
    • Year 1
  • Gordon West Public School: Wednesday 11.35-12.10pm
    • Year 2, Year 3 and Year 5
  • West Pymble Public School: Wednesday 12.35-1.10pm
    • Year 1, Year 2 and Year 4

The original meaning of “catechist” is one who “echoes God’s word”, however catechists are much more than that. Facilitating a child’s faith formation is a rewarding experience that does not require a teacher’s degree or an advanced degree in theology: all it requires is enthusiasm, as well as generosity in sharing your time with others.

Classes are once a week and run for 30-35 minutes. All resources, teacher’s manuals, student workbooks, support and training are provided free of charge. Please contact Mel Benbow for a commitment free discussion about how you can add value to our community’s youth.
