Catechetical Day


Of all of the pillars of the Catechism, many times we think prayer is the simplest of all. Have you ever thought, “I already know how to pray!” The fourth pillar of the Catechism, however, is perhaps the least understood and yet most essential in terms of living the Christian life, because it is our lifeline to the Lord.

We invite everyone in the diocese — priests, deacons, directors of faith formation, catechists, RCIA team leaders, Catholic school teachers, youth and young adult leaders, homeschooling parents, and interested laity — to join us this Catechetical Day as we learn more about Pillar IV: Prayer!
