Confraternity of Christian Doctrine (CCD) Special Religious Education (SRE)
"Being a catechist is not a title, it is an attitude: abiding with him, and it lasts for a lifetime!
It means abiding in the Lord’s presence and letting ourselves be led by him".
“Special Religious Education (SRE) is education in the beliefs and practices of an approved religious persuasion. Under the Education Act 1990, s. 32, government schools allow time for special religious education.” (DoE SRE)
The Catholic Diocese of Bathurst provides a ministry to students in state schools through groups of volunteer Special Religious Education (SRE) teachers in each parish. Volunteer SRE teachers and assistants carry the message to the students in state schools that God is love and Jesus came to bring the Good News.
