Archdiocese of Manila celebrates “Araw ng mga Katekista”


The Archdiocese of Manila celebrated the “Araw ng mga Katekista” last October 13, 2018, at the San Carlos Auditorium in Makati City.

Dubbed as “KATEKISTA: KUWENTO, KANTA,” the event recognized the selfless service of the catechists who continuously serve the faithful especially the young people with passion and dedication to their vocation.

The activity commenced with the celebration of the Holy Eucharist presided over by Rev. Fr. Carlo Magno Marcelo, Minister of the Catechetical Foundation of the Archdiocese of Manila (CFAM).

"Mapapalad ang mga nakikinig ng Salita ng Diyos at tumutupad nito,"  Fr. Marcelo said during his homily as he reflected on the Gospel of Luke.

According to the news posted at the CFAM website, the priest reminded the catechists of the importance of listening and living out the story of God. He also encouraged them to reflect and understand God’s message to them as catechists. He as well urged them to continue inspiring other catechists to serve the people by telling their own stories of faith, hope, and love.

“KATEKISTA: KUWENTO, KANTA” is a special presentation that featured the life story of the catechists and how they responded to the call of God to become of service to him. The show also tackled topics like Alternative Catechesis and Beyond Catechetical Boarders.

Highlighting the celebration were performances from selected guest singers that gave life to the songs written by Fr. Carlo Marcelo about the colorful and meaningful journey on the life of a catechist.

Sr. Leah Japos and CFAM Choir, Ms. Geli Federoso, Sr. Susay Valdez and Mr. Oggie Benipayo, Fr. Gelo Parlan and Katekista Band, and Ms. Rosanna Robles were among those who sang the beautiful music of Fr. Marcelo. 

The event was attended by the catechists (full time and volunteers), parishes, and schools from the Archdiocese of Manila. (Jheng Manalang Prado/RCAM-AOC)
