First Seminar for Catechist at Rachol Seminary, 2017 – 2018

First Seminar for Catechist at Rachol Seminary

The Catechetical Unit of Rachol seminary organised a seminar on “The Basic Catechism formulas” on 9th July 2017. Catechist from the different parishes who are attached to the Catechetical unit of the Rachol Seminary attended the seminar. The total number of the catechists who attended the seminar was 587 which included the guest catechist from neighbouring denary. The program was schedule for the day from 3.30 p.m – 5.30 p.m. The program commenced with the welcome speech of Rev. Fr. AlexioMenezes, Rector of Rachol seminary who emphasised on the important of understanding the catechism by the catechist in order to teach catechism especially the basic formulas which we often take it for granted. There were two sessions given by the seminarians Francis Barreto and Leslie Gomes. Sem. Francis Barreto who is the student of the 3rd year of Theology delighted the audience with his talk. He enlightened the catechist by dealing with the topics like Sign of the cross; Glory be to the Father; Hail Mary and Our Father. The meaning and the context along with the symbolism used in these prayers were well delivered by the resource person. The second session was taken by sem. Leslie Gomes who is also a student of 3rd year of Theology spoke on the prayer “I Confess” and initiated the audience to understand the prayer in detail.

The audience were mesmerized with the action songs done by the seminarians. Lastly the co-ordinator Sem. Jerson Costa gave vote of thanks.

Catechetical Seminar I, at Rachol Seminary on 9th July, was a great success. Praise be to God.
