Two years have passed

the Inland Register

(From the October 20, 2011 edition of the Inland Register)

Two years ago catechists from various parts of the diocese gathered at the Cathedral of Our Lady of Lourdes to begin a formation program for catechists led by Sister Margarita Hernandez and organized by the diocese. It was a great success. About 40 catechists gathered to share their experiences, build on this important ministry, and learn a little more about their faith. Participants came from Brewster, Othello, Walla Walla and Spokane. Almost all catechists completed the program. Some attended only the first or second part of the program. Everyone had the opportunity to meet with priests, seminarians, nuns and Bishops Cupich and Skylstad. On Saturday, Oct. 8, catechists gathered one last time to receive their certificates, gifts and celebrate their graduation with a beautiful party. Two years pass quickly but the experiences and friendships that were built in this program will last a lifetime. Thanks to the bishops, priests and religious education directors who supported this program. But most of all many thanks to all the catechists who made the sacrifice to attend this program.
