We are working with Skyline Productions to have many of the Plenary talks live streamed around the world. They have set up a site for this purpose on their website at Faith and Life TV.  While this technology is new for many of us, we hope you will find it easy to join.  We are offering this freely on the world wide web so that many can join.  We do hope that you may be able to offer a small donation to help with the cost

The flash drive will contain over 12 hours of the talks from the plenary sessions presented at 60th Anniversary of The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd International Celebration for Catechists and will be available at the close of the Celebration.

A Prayer -
Oración -  

God of Sacred History,

The work of many catechists brought us

To this place and time.

We have come to celebrate and remember,

To gather the memories of many decades.

 

Dios de la Historia Sagrada,

El trabajo de muchos catequistas nos reunió

En este lugar y en este  momento.

Venimos a celebrar y a recordar

Recolectar las memorias de muchas décadas.

 

You have been the Shepherd for each one of us;           

For Sofia and Gianna,

For Tilde and Tina,

For Father Mongillo and Maria Christleib,

For every Formation Leader who has led a course,

For every artist and artisan who has made materials,

For every catechist and child in the atrium.

 

Tú has sido el Pastor para cada uno de nosotros;

Para Sofia y Gianna,

Para Tilde y Tina,

Para el Padre Mongilio y Maria Christleb,

Para cada líder de formación que ha dirigido un curso,

Para cada artista y artesano que ha hecho materiales,

Para cada catequista y niño en el Atrio.

 

You have been the quiet Presence in the atrium,

While we walk the line and pour grain,

When we light candles and read scripture,

When we name and identify the articles of the Mass, and

While we meditate on the mystery of the Kingdom of God.

 

Tú has sido la Presencia Silenciosa en el Atrio,

Al caminar en la línea y vertimos grano,

Al encender las velas y leemos la Biblia,

Al nombrar e identificar los elementos de la Misa, y

Al meditar sobre el misterio del Reino de Dios.

 

You give the new child and the new adult

An encounter of contemplation and joy,

In the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

Kept alive these 60 years through the prayers and generosity

Of those who have been called to this work.

 

Tu le das al niño Nuevo y al adulto Nuevo

Un encuentro de contemplación y gozo,

En la Catequesis del Buen Pastor

Mantenido vivo en estos 60 años a través de las oraciones  y la generosidad

De aquellos que han sido llamados a esta labor.

 

May we who hear and recognize Your voice,

Find nourishment at Your table,

Rejoice at Your return, and

Look forward to the time

When there will be one flock with one Shepherd.  Amen.

 

Que los que escuchamos y reconocemos Tu voz,

Encontremos alimento en Tu Mesa,

Regocijo en Tu regreso.

Y ansiamos el momento

Cuando haya un rebaño con un Pastor.  Amén.






“In your presence there is fullness of joy..."
Psalm 16:11
