The Office for Evangelization and Catechesis Offers New Four-part Webinar Series in March

Friday, February 05 2021

Beginning 2 March 2021, the Office for Evangelization and Catechesis (English Sector) of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) will offer a four-part webinar series entitled Nurturing Friendship, the Directory for Catechesis in Dialogue with the Encyclical Letter Fratelli Tutti, and invites individuals who are responsible for evangelization and catechesis including, clergy, consecrated persons, laity involved in ministry, directors and coordinators of evangelization and catechesis, and Catholic educators to participate.

Following the enthusiastic reception by the 265 participants of an initial webinar series to introduce key orientations of the Directory for Catechesis in October 2020, the new weekly sessions will explore how the themes presented in each of the documents call catechists to be people of hope who promote human dignity and communion with God by building bridges and asking ‘Who is my neighbour?’. Keynote speakers from across the country will offer insight and propose concrete ways to help form communities of missionary disciples within dioceses, eparchies, parishes, and Catholic schools.

Webinars will take place on Tuesday afternoons on 2, 9, 16 and 23 March and are 90 minutes in length. Registration is free of charge, however interested participants are invited to sign up before Monday, 22 February 2021. When registering directly within the Zoom meeting platform, participants can indicate their preference for one, two, three or all four of the sessions.
