NORTH EAST BOMBAY DEANERY RECOLLECTION

Catechetical Coordinator

MATUNGA-MUMBAI, FEBRUARY 26, 2013: The North Mumbai Deanery (East) held its third <![if !vml]><![endif]>'Recollection' for the Catechists from the Sunday Schools and Regular Schools on February 24, 2013 at Don Bosco Youth Services, AV Hall, Matunga, from 5.00 pm to 8.00 pm.  In all, twenty were present for the recollection.

The evening began with a prayer that incorporated a reading from Acts 1: 8: "You shall be my witnesses to the ends of the earth."  Fr. Wilfred D'Souza welcomed the catechists, and was also the Animator for the input session of the Recollection. He conducted an enriching session by focusing on the recent Synod propositions on "Transmission of the Faith through New Evangelization".  His talk highlighted the obligation of every Catholic to be evangelized so as to then go out and evangelize. This was done through highlighting the following reflections:

01)       THE PRAYERFUL READING OF SACRED SCRIPTURE              Proposition 11
02)       CONVERSION                                                                                  Proposition 22
03)       HOLINESS AND THE NEW EVANGELIZERS                              Proposition 23
04)       CATECHESIS, CATECHISTS AND THE CATECHISM                Proposition 29

06)       LITURGY                                                                                            Proposition 35
07)       SPIRITUAL DIMENSION OF THE NEW EVANGELIZATION    Proposition 36
08)       PARISHES AND OTHER ECCLESIAL REALITIES                                   Proposition 26
09)       WITNESSING IN A SECULARIZED WORLD                               Proposition 8
10)       THE ROLE OF THE LAY FAITHFUL                                              Proposition 45
11)       FORMATION FOR EVANGELIZERS                                              Proposition 45
12)       THE CHRISTIAN FAMILY                                                              Proposition 48
13)       YOUTH AND THE NEW EVANGELIZATION                             Proposition 51
14)       THE TRANSMISSION OF THE CHRISTIAN FAITH                    Proposition 57
15)       CHALLENGES OF OUR TIME                                                        Proposition 13

A meaningful prayer service was then conducted by Lloyd Nunes, a Team coordinator.  He focused on the Passion of Our Lord, and Reflections on the Lenten season, using power point presentations.

All the teachers who attended the recollection felt encouraged and supported.

The evening came to an end with delicious snacks being served.
