Confraternity of Christian Doctrine (CCD)

Catechist's Ministry

The Catechists, also called Scripture / Special Religious Education (SRE) teachers, are 'doorway people' who share their faith with the children in state's schools and connect them along with their families to the parish. They perform their calling to proclaim the "Good News of Jesus Christ" to the children on behalf of the whole Catholic parish community.

The Catechists from Our Lady of Dolours teach at the following schools each week:

Primary schools: Mowbray Public School, Roseville Public School, Castle Cove Public School, Chatswood Public School, Artarmon Public School.

High School: Chatswood High Public School

Our Catechists' Coordinator oversees the Parish Religious Education and engage in a wide range of activities to ensure that programs in our parish operate effectively for the wider children and family communities.

There is always a need for new Catechists. Parents and grandparents are welcomed to observe and to assist in our scripture classes at anytime.

Please contact our Catechist's Coordinator to join the catechists' ministry and/or to assist in our Scripture Classes.
