The following text was sent from the Office of the Bishop on 23 August 2013 regarding the recommendation of a blessing during Mass on Catechetical Sunday:
On Sunday, 15 September 2013 throughout the world the Catholic Chuch celebrates those who are appointed to serv the local Church as catechists. During the Year of Faith I would ask all to give emphasis to this work by asking each parish in our diocese to invite all catechists to attend onen of the weekend Masses.
For this celebration the use of the regular orations and scriptures of the Mass should be used. A homily focusing on the catechetical mission fo the church is recommended along with the blessing of all those with the deisgnation of catechist using the attached instructions adapted from the book of blessings following the Creed.
