Morning of Reflection for Catechists

September 16, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


We invite all faith formation leaders and catechists to a morning of reflection. Consider coming as a parish group and join other catechists from around the archdiocese for Mass, breakfast, a talk by Susan Abbott, and fellowship.

Return to your parish affirmed in your important ministry, strengthened through prayer, and encouraged by brothers and sisters in Christ. We are hosting the morning of reflection on Saturday, 9/16, in hopes that the next day you’ll celebrate Catechetical Sunday, 9/17, at your parish!

Susan Abbott is one of two Directors of the Our Lady of Good Voyage Shrine in the Seaport area of Boston.  She was the Director of the Office of Religious Education of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston for many years, serving in that office in several capacities since 1999 and before that working in parish-based religious education starting in 1981. She has served on the boards of the National Conference of Catechetical Leadership and the National Association of Catechetical Media Professionals, and was a member of the New England Conference of Diocesan Directors of Religious Education. She is a prior recipient of the Sister Marian O’Connor Award for Excellence in Catechetical Leadership. Susan is also a former chairperson of the board of directors of Massachusetts Citizens for Life. Susan was born and has lived in Boston her entire life, except for one year when she and her husband lived in Germany while he was a Fulbright Fellow. A widow since 2002, she has four children, three daughters and one son, of whom she says their beauty, brilliance, and goodness defy description.
