ASIA/HONG KONG - Workshop for catechists on how to teach children about the Mystery of the Eucharist

Wednesday, 22 June 2005

Hong Kong (Fides Service) - In this Year of the Eucharist Hong Kong diocese is giving special attention to the formation of Catechists whose duty it is to teach children about the mystery of the Body and Blood of Christ present in the Eucharist. Catechists in the territory were invited to attend a workshop organised by the Commission for the Doctrine of the Faith of Hong Kong diocese.
According to the diocesan bulletin Kong Ko Bao the workshop consisted of lectures on how to teach children the meaning of the Eucharist and the meaning of “communion between God and humanity”. Catechists were encouraged to use games and quizzes on the life of Jesus and Bible stories to help the children understand.
The aim of the workshop was to enable Catechists to help children see that Jesus brings unity and to be in communion calls for love and also little sacrifices. The workshop was attended by 63 catechists, pastoral workers and teachers of religion from 13 parishes.
