    Whose Responsibility?

    September is usually the month in which catechetical or religious education programs start in the parishes and Catholic schools of the Archdiocese. Last Sunday the entire Catholic Church in the U.S.A celebrated “Catechetical Sunday.” The word “catechesis” means the act of teaching or passing on the faith, therefore on Catechetical Sunday parishes around the country publicly acknowledge and commission those who will be teaching the faith to our children and youth.
