Development & Peace: Recovering Together

The pandemic has changed all our lives. Everyone has suffered.But it has also shown us that those who were marginalized tobegin with have suffered the most.

  • How can you wash your hands when you do not have access tosoap and clean water?
  • How can you practice physical distancing when you live in arefugee camp?
  • How can you get medical attention when there is no access tohealth care?
  • How can you feed your family when you are locked down withno social safety net?
  • How can you protect yourself without access to public healthinformation?

With your support, Development and Peace is helping to answer all these questions in Latin America, Africa, Asia and the Middle East

Catechism Corner

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Thank you for being very patient and understanding about the plans for our Catechism 2020-2021 program. 

We have decided as directed by the Archdiocese of Winnipeg and Father Yolly that this 2020-2021 year we will be doing the Home-based catechesis/remote instruction & distance learning program for our parish.

The program during this pandemic will be delivered online.  You and your children will be involved with the Catechists through email,  phone calls or teachers will reach out in video conference if needed. 

We will continue with the Finding God Program that our Parish uses and your child will be provided the work book.  Parents will be given the online resources to help assist your children throughout this Catechetical year.

We will be ordering the books in the next week and it should take a couple weeks to arrive.  We will keep you posted on the start dates and the plans in the next few weeks. 

 A tentative date of October 24,25, 2020 or possibly early November 2020 may be the timeline on the start date of the Catechism year.   I will have the Catechists in contact with you as soon as the books arrive and we will send out the calendars for the year.  Our spaces are very limited and we are not taking any more registrations at this time, we hope you understand.

If you have any questions, please email me, thanks!

God Bless,

Dianne Aquino
(Catechism Coordinator)
