Catechists from across the diocese of Aberdeen met on Saturday 29 September for a “Re-Source Catechist Retreat Day” at Pluscarden Abbey. The day began with Mass, followed by an interactive workshop on the use of sacred art in catechesis delivered by Sr. Imelda Ann, OP.
Afternoon workshops included a time of Adoration and Scripture reflection in Pluscarden Abbey’s Lady Chapel and an interactive workshop on technological resources provided by the Ogilvie Centre. Catechists enjoyed the grounds of the Abbey and lunch together. “This kind of day is so needed for us!” exclaimed one participant. Another added, “I have only one complaint: that the retreat wasn’t longer!”
