Welcome to the website of our Diocesan Parish Catechetical Support Team.
Our usual message of welcome doesn’t seem to fit altogether in these times, when we are faced with challenges in so many aspects of our lives so during this period we will, on these pages, be offering resources that we hope will be helpful to you.
It is difficult to assess our needs as catechists during this period of the coronavirus pandemic. Things will doubtless change, or become clearer, as our parish communities recognise their needs. These pages will be updated as we become aware of further resources, as will other Diocesan pages, so do check the website regularly.
STUDY This period might offer an opportunity for some gentle study. Perhaps the resources offered by our own Bishops’ Conference would be a good starting point.

If you are considering a more ‘formal’ kind of study please contact the Agency for Evangelisation at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Diocesan page, Diocesan Resources During The Period Of Mass Suspension, is helpful to all. It includes Liturgy & Prayer, Reflection, and Faith in Action.
We pray for all who access these pages.
May you and your loved ones keep well and safe.
