Circular 2011/21 Re: School of Lay Leaders Level Three
My dear brother priests, religious women and parish leaders:
Having completed the module on the sacraments and the spirituality of stewardship in our School of Lay Leaders (SLL), we are now ready to begin level three of the same formation program dwelling on the Catechism of the Catholic Church as recommended by the Holy Father.
The following are encouraged to attend this module on the Catechism of the Catholic Church: parish catechetical coordinators, parish council officers, interested teachers in Catholic schools or those who have completed the first two modules. Because the program is modular, it is not necessary to attend the first tow modules to enroll in the third.
The seminars will be held at the Lay Formation Center in Bonuan Gueset, Dagupan City from 1:30 PM until 4:00 PM on these dates: August 13, 20, 27; September 17, 24; October 22, 29, November 12, 19, 26.
There will be no fees required but the participants must commit to attend at least eight of the ten seminar days to be considered graduates of the program. There will also be a diagnostic examination after the seminar.
Please convey the information to your lay leaders and encourage them to avail of this formation program. We cannot see the Church renewed without sustained catechesis. Thank you for sharing the vision.
