  2. 2. -1- PROGRAM REGISTRATION AND EXHIBITS 8:00 – 9:00 OPENING PRAYER / WELCOME 9:00 – 9:15 (Rev. Msgr. Michael J. Motta, D.Min. – Director, and Ms. Patricia Keck, MA – Assistant Director, Archdiocesan Office of Religious Education KEYNOTE ADDRESS: “DO I LOOK FAT IN THIS? PUTTING ON CHRIST, A PERFECT FIT! 9:15 – 10:00 (Joe Paprocki, D.Min., National Consultant for Faith Formation, Loyola Press – Compliments of Loyola Press) In the Rite of Baptism we are told that we have become a new creation and have clothed ourselves in Christ. Catechesis, then, is the process of getting dressed! To put on Christ is to learn, day be day, what it means to live as his disciples. The key to Christian discipleship is no secret. Jesus told his disciples, “Learn from me” (Mt 11:29). To clothe ourselves in Christ is to learn from him the importance of the six tasks of catechesis (GDC 85-87). In this address, we will take a refreshing look at these tasks: knowing God (knowledge of the faith), worshipping God (liturgical education), loving God and neighbor (moral education), turning to God (teaching to pray), living in community (education for community life), and proclaiming the Kingdom (missionary initiation). Catechesis is the process of helping others to try these six areas of Christian life “on for size” so that they come to realize that putting on Christ is a perfect fit.

  4. 4. -3- OPENING PRAYER LEADER: Gracious God, you know us and you love us. You know all of the joys, pains, successes and struggles we have experienced as your teachers and catechists. Guide us as we now reflect on our response to your call. ALL: A CATECHIST’S PRAYER Father of all families, you have called me to serve the family in truth and love as a catechist. May I be faithful to this call, rooted in your Word, and open to the gifts of the Holy Spirit. May I use these gifts, especially the gifts of faith, hope, and love, to serve the family as a witness to you, who are love and life and the source and destiny of all families. Let your Spirit enlighten my mind and strengthen my heart so that I can be a path of Christ‟s love to families, especially those in need, the homebound and aged, the disabled and disheartened. Through the intercession of Mary and Joseph, I pray for the Church, the Bride of Christ, whose mission to build a civilization of love passes through the family. LEADER: John Henry Cardinal Newman was born in London in 1801. Originally an evangelical Oxford academic and clergyman in the Church of England, he converted to Roman Catholicism in 1845, was the first Rector of the Catholic University in Dublin, and was made Cardinal by Pope Leo XIII in 1879. Through his extensive published writings and private correspondence he created a greater understanding of the Catholic Church and its teachings. At his death he was praised for his unworldliness and humility. On September 19, 2010 (Catechetical Sunday), Pope Benedict XVI beatified John Henry Cardinal Newman. Let us now pray in Blessed Cardinal Newman‟s words: ALL: God has created me to do him some definite service; He has committed some work to me which he has not committed to another. I have my mission – I may never know it in this life, but I shall be told it in the next. I am a link in a chain, a bond of connection between persons. He has not created me for nothing. I shall do his work. I shall be an angel of peace, a preacher of truth in my own place while not intending it – if I do but keep his commandments. Therefore I will trust him. Whatever, wherever I am, I can never be thrown away. If I am in sickness, my sickness may serve him; in perplexity, my perplexity may serve him; if I am in sorrow, my sorrow may serve him. He does nothing in vain. He knows what he is about. He may take away my friends. He may throw me among strangers. He may make me feel desolate, make my spirits sink, Hide my future from me – still he knows what he is about.
  6. 6. -5- PENITENTIAL RITE OPENING PRAYER LITURGY OF THE WORD FIRST READING: ISAIAH 49:3,5-6 El Señor me dijo: “Tú eres mi siervo, Israel, y estoy orgulloso de ti”. Y ahora habla el Señor, aquel que desde el vientre me formó como siervo suyo, para que le trajera a Jacob y le reuniera a Israel. ¡Tan valioso soy para el Señor y en Dios se halla mi fuerza! Él dice: “No sólo eres mi siervo para restablecer las tribus de Jacob y traer a los sobrevivientes de Israel, sino que te convierto en luz de las naciones para que mi salvación llegue hasta el último rincón de la tierra”. RESPONSORIAL PSALM: PSALM 40 Used with permission
  7. 7. -6- SECOND READING: EPHESIANS 4:1-7,11-13 Brothers and sisters, I, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to live in a manner worthy of the call you have received, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another through love, striving to preserve the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace: one body and one Spirit, as you were also called to the one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. But grace was given to each of us according to the measure of Christ‟s gift. And he gave some as apostles, others as prophets, others as evangelists, others as pastors and teachers, to equip the holy ones for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain the unity of faith and knowledge of the Son of God, to mature to manhood, to the extent of the full stature of Christ. GOSPEL ACCLAMATION Reprint permission granted by GIA Publications GOSPEL: MARK 10:35-45 Santiago y Juan, los hijos de Zebedeo, se le acercaron y le dijeron: “Maestro, queremos que nos concedas lo que vamos a pedirte.” Jesús les preguntó: “¿Qué quieren que haga por ustedes?” Ellos le contestaron: “Concédenos sentarnos uno a tu derecha y otro a tu izquierda cuando se manifieste tu gloria.” Jesús les dijo: “No saben lo que piden. ¿Pueden beber el cáliz de amargura que yo voy a beber, o pasar por la terrible prueba que yo voy a pasar?” Ellos le respondieron: “Sí, podemos.” Jesús entonces les dijo: “Beberán el cáliz que yo voy a beber y pasarán por la prueba que yo voy a pasar. Pero el sentarse a mi derecha o a mi izquierda no me toca a mí concederlo, sino que es para quienes está reservado.”
  8. 8. -7- Al oír aquello, los otros diez se indignaron contra Santiago y Juan. Jesús los llamó y les dijo: “Ustedes saben que quienes figuran como jefes de las naciones las gobiernan tiránicamente y que sus dirigentes las oprimen. No debe ser así entre ustedes. El que quiere ser importante entre ustedes, que sea su servidor, y el que quiera ser el primero entre ustedes, que sea esclavo de todos. Pues tampoco el Hijo del hombre ha venido a ser servido, sino a servir y a dar su vida en rescate por todos.

  13. 13. -12- 1+2 DOES WHAT WE SAY AT MASS REALLY MATTER? The translation of the new Roman Missal has been approved by the Vatican and will be implemented in 2011. Why is the change in language for the Roman Missal important? There is a different philosophy of translation. How can this affect the ordinary parishioner and his/her family? Can our understanding of the Eucharist change? What should a catechist do to facilitate the implementation? Rev. David J. Baranowski, Director, Office for Divine Worship, Archdiocese of Hartford; Pastor, St. James Church, Rocky Hill ROOM 118 1+2 IS IT RIGHT OR WRONG?

Marcia Franko, M.A., faculty, Catholic Biblical School, Archdiocese of Hartford and former Parish Coordinator of Youth Ministry ROOM 217 1+2 TAPPING TEENS FOR PEER MINISTRY Many parishes do not have post-Confirmation youth ministry programs in the traditional sense. However, most parishes do have various ministries where teens are either already involved or can become involved. Often times, it is within these ministries where teens are most effective in ministering to their peers. This workshop will help identify existing ministerial areas in the parish as well as strategies to enhance their experience.
