Art Competition Unites Catechism Students at St. Joseph Church in Sentul
The St. Joseph Church in Sentul recently organized an art competition for its catechism students, bringing together the youth, family day committee, and Catechetical Ministry to foster spiritual growth and deepen their understanding of faith. Held on May 14, 2023, during the catechism classes, the event witnessed enthusiastic participation from students of various age groups.
The competition embraced a Catechetical House challenge format, where students were divided into three houses: the House of Maccabees, House of Genesis, and House of Exodus. This Catechetical Challenge is in conjunction with the upcoming Family Day event in September.
The competition encompassed different themes based on the students’ grade levels. Nursery to Standard 2 students created posters highlighting God’s creation, while Standard 3 to 5 focused on family activities. Standard 6 to Form 2 students explored the significance of the holy scriptures, and Forms 3 to 4 students delved into the sacraments and their importance.
In a commendable display of inclusivity, the Tamil students also actively took part in the competition, showcasing their artistic talents alongside their peers. Furthermore, the Myanmar catechism students are scheduled to have their own art competition on May 20, guided by the English group.
The success of this event would not have been possible without the collaborative efforts of the youth, family day committee, and Catechetical Ministry. Their united support ensured a memorable experience for the students and facilitated a sense of community among all participants. Notably, parents also played a vital role by generously donating art materials for the Myanmar community’s upcoming competition.
A heartfelt expression of gratitude goes to Rev Father Frederick for his support and encouragement in allowing all children to join the competition. Additionally, the dedicated catechists deserve recognition for their efforts in facilitating the activities within the classrooms. Lastly, a special appreciation goes out to all the individuals involved in planning this momentous event, whose hard work and commitment made it a resounding success.
Through this art competition, the St. Joseph Church community achieved its goal of coming together as one, fostering spiritual growth, and enhancing understanding of the faith among its catechism students.
