1st batch of students graduate from UK catechetical courses
Graduates of the Maryvale Institute courses at the Cathedral of the Good Shepherd.
It was a celebration of the courage and dedication of some 30 men and women who completed special catechetical courses despite the challenges of caring for new babies, children studying for the PSLE, work stress and health issues.
On Nov 9, Monsignor Ambrose Vaz congratulated the graduates of the inaugural runs of the Maryvale Certificate in Catechesis (2016-2018) and the Maryvale Certificate in Marriage and Family (2017-2018) courses during their Graduation Mass.
Maryvale Institute, based in Birmingham, UK, is an international Catholic college with an outstanding reputation in catechesis.
Msgr Vaz told the graduates, who were accompanied by friends and family members, of the Church’s anticipation of their contribution to the growth and formation of others.
The Graduation Mass was celebrated by Msgr Vaz, together with Fr Edward Clare, Director of the Maryvale Institute, and Fr Erbin Fernandez, former Catechetical Director.
Both the Maryvale Certificate in Catechesis and Marriage and Family courses have started a second run in November 2018.
