Catechesis from Greek means to “echo” our faith. Please join us in praying for our catechists and pray for those who God is calling to join us in this ministry. “Jesus did not call volunteers to do a job but he called disciples to answer God’s call of service to God and the Church” (Pope Francis, Symposium on Catechesis, July 2017). Do you feel called to join our faith formation team? If so, please contact Lori Mascia email@example.com

Start preparing TODAY for SUNDAY!
Bartimaeus, a blind man, the son of Timaeus, sat by the roadside begging.
On hearing that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say,
"Jesus, son of David, have pity on me." And many rebuked him, telling him to be silent.
But he kept calling out all the more, "Son of David, have pity on me."
Jesus stopped and said, "Call him." So they called the blind man, saying to him,
"Take courage; get up, Jesus is calling you."
He threw aside his cloak, sprang up, and came to Jesus.
Jesus said to him in reply, "What do you want me to do for you?"
The blind man replied to him, "Master, I want to see."
Jesus told him, "Go your way; your faith has saved you."
Immediately he received his sight and followed him on the way.

It is at this exact moment that our faith is most needed! This Sunday’s Gospel urges us to reflect on our own lives as to where we need to persevere in faith, with courage, to listen and see Jesus. We encourage you to spend time with Jesus this week in Adoration and open your heart and ask God for the grace to see & follow Jesus.
