Sittwe Diocese is in a remote area in Myanmar but has 60 priests and 165 catechists. The Diocese tells ABM, “We are proud of having these active ministers and give great thanks to God for giving them such.”
The Diocese tries to hold catechist refresher training courses every two years which sees small groups of catechists gather for a month. Refresher training is very important because there are many new catechists and all need to access up-to-date information and knowledge.
“Catechists have many difficulties and challenges in their field and changes are happening every time. We conduct refresher training to motivate catechists in their knowledge and spirituality,” the Diocese representative said.
Through this refresher training, the leadership skills and abilities of catechists will be improved, and it is hoped their work will become successful for the church, the community and those in need.
The Diocese has previously run these trainings with their own resources but in 2016 is facing financial challenges so they are asking for support. Please give generously.
