Bangalore, Jun. 29.

Don Bosco Church, Lingarajapuram, Bangalore, has initiated the Sunday Catechesis with novelties like fun with faith, faith games, pilgrimages, homework sheet cards and activities. 

Father Jose Koottyanickal SDB, Parish priest, addressed the children and catechists at the inaugural function of the Sunday Catechesis and lit the four pillars of faith (Sacraments, Creed, Prayer and Ten Commandments), the main content of Sunday Catechesis. Father Gilbert, the coordinator of the Sunday Catechesis, explained the meaning and purpose of the four pillars of faith. An Oath of Faith led by Ms Kateline, one of the students, was taken by all the children and catechists at the inaugural function.  

“Presently, Sunday Catechesis is not given due importance by parents or children. It is not just studying and exams alone during catechesis classes. We are introducing fun with faith, faith games, pilgrimages, Bible project activities, homework sheet cards, etc., for children,” said Father Gilbert in his address to the children on the first day of the Sunday Catechesis.

Don Bosco Church has introduced distinct and different textbooks for I to XII. Currently, there are about 250 children. “In a parish of a minimum of 1000 families, we should have a minimum of 500 children during Sunday Catechesis,” reminded Father Gilbert as he suggested to the children to bring their companions to the Catechesis. There are about 25 catechists who volunteered to collaborate in the mission of faith formation at DBC. The catechists attended an orientation session and will continue the training programme every first Saturday of the month.
