Saint Christine’s will join together with parishes throughout the
country to celebrate Catechetical Sunday. The theme this year is “This
Is My Body Given to You.” Our catechists will be commissioned at
the 9:00 am Mass and we will also reflect on the role parents play in
handing down the faith to our children and youth. Catechetical Sunday
is an opportunity for all to rededicate themselves to this mission as
a community of faith.
