Bishop of Parramatta, Most Rev Vincent Long OFM Conv in his homily, thanked the catechists for their tireless work.

“I thank you most sincerely for the service you render to the young people in our schools and parishes. May Mary who is the example par excellence of faith, hope and love intercede for us and make us instruments of grace,” Bishop Vincent said.
