O God, our Heavenly Father, you have given us the gift of these catechist to be heralds of the Gospel of our parish family.

We lift them up to you in Thanksgiving and intercede for them, a Word that lifts up and affirms, calls forth and challenges, is compassionate and consoles. We pray that our parish family will always be blessed with those who have responded to the call to share in Christ’s prophetic mission as catechists. May we too be open to the universal call to service that Christ addresses to all his disciples, contributing our gifts to the communion of faith, the Church.

We ask this in Jesus’ name.
