The catechists teach in both primary and high schools within our Parish boundaries. Currently there are three of each, needing about thirty-five volunteers and covering more than twenty five classes each week. In 2017, they will teach almost six hundred students. The techers are trained and supported, then provided with and teach from the Sydney Archdiocesan Confraternity of Christian Doctrine (CCD) curriculum. All texts and resources are provided for them. There are also regular opportunities to further develop their skills and knowledge. Many groups meet regularly outside teaching times to join in prayer, discussion and administration development.The ministry is deeply rewarding and critical for our Catholic children attending state schools.
