This month of October is of great importance for two rea-sons, one of the universal kind, the 2018 Synod for the young the other one more of a local kind, the beginning of cathe-quesis at our parish.
We unite ourselves with the Holy Father and the Synod Fa-thers and consultants who will be meeting from the 3rd to the 28th of October this year in the Young Peoples Synod under the title “Young people, faith and vocational discernment”. Young people today face big challenges and opportunities, both internal and external, many of them because of their specific surroundings, while other challenges are shared by youngsters all over the world.
In view of this, it is necessary for the Church to reflect on its conception of young people, in order to be an effective re-levant guide, and bearer of life
We also would like to dedicate to our Lady of the Rosary all the children who will be starting cathequesis after the summer holidays. We pray that the ca-thequesis becomes a school of Christianity for all children and parents, so that foundations are laid for a church, built upon Family values as a domestic Church.
