Catechetical Sunday

What is Catechetical Sunday?

Catechetical Sunday is a special day when catechists are recognized and honored. On Catechetical Sunday, we can honor those who have entered into the ministry of sharing the Word of God. The day also provides an opportunity for us to consider what we do to communicate God’s Word ourselves, through our own personal daily words and actions. On Catechetical Sunday, parents and guardians are also honored because they are the true first catechists, sharing the Catholic faith with their families from the moments of the first breaths of life.


When is Catechetical Sunday?

Always the third Sunday in September, this year Catechetical Sunday will fall on September 17th.
