Catechetical month was formally ushered in by the Archdiocesan Catechetical Office (ACO) on Saturday, September 5 with an initiative entitled ‘Catechesis Through/With Technology – Essentials of Social Media Usage’.
Jointly presented by two Catholics —Julius Leacock, IT Specialist/Catechist of Holy Trinity Parish Arouca, and Janine Roberts, Team-building Consultant—the three-hour Zoom seminar was attended by catechists from across the Archdiocese of Port of Spain and had two stated objectives: 1. To familiarise catechists with the key social media communication tools and 2. To demonstrate the usefulness of these tools for catechesis.
