Guarding the deposit of faith is the mission which the Lord entrusted to his Church,and
which she fulfills in every age.The Second Vatican Ecumenical Council, which was opened 30 years ago by Pope John XXIII, of happy memory, has as its intention and purpose to highlight the Church’s apostolic and pastoral mission,and by making the truth of the Gospel shine forth to lead all people to seek and receive Christ’s love which surpasses all knowledge.
The principal task entrusted to the Council by the Pope John XXIII was to guard and present better the precious deposit of Christian doctrine in order to make it more accessible to the Christian faithful and to all people of good will.The Catechism of the Catholic Church is the result of very extensive collaboration; it was prepared over six years of intense work done in a spirit of complete openness and fervent zeal.
Catechism is an education in the faith of children,young people and adults which includes especially the teaching of Christian doctrine imparted,generally speaking,in an organic and systematic way,with a view to initiating the hearers into the fullness of Christian life.
Its principal sources are the Sacred Scriptures,the Fathers of the Church,the liturgy,and the Church’s Magisterium.
Whoever teaches must become“ all things to all men” – (1 Cor.22), to win everyone to Christ.Above all,teachers must not imagine that a single kind of soul has been entrusted to them,and that consequently it is lawful to teach and form equally all the faithful in true piety with one and the same method!
At Mount Carmel chapel we have catechism classes every Sunday also known as Sunday school. We have Pre communion and post communion classes. And we also prepare them for the sacrament of confirmation. We have around 15 teachers who volunteer to impart the faith to the little one. The number of children is around two hundred who come every Sunday for the classes. Once a month we have the children mass animated by the children with the help of catechist.
For further information and enrolling your child for Sunday school kindly contact the Chaplain after 8:00 A.M. mass on Sunday.
