Becoming More Like Christ


CEC reports to the Archbishop's Council

Fr John O’Toole, Director of the Christian Education Centre, welcomed Archbishop Kevin, and the other members of the Archbishop's Council namely Area Bishops John, Patrick and Paul and the Vicar General Mgr Richard Moth to the Centre in order to present the Annual Report of activities and initiatives provided in the Diocese for the period from June 2008 – May 2009. This annual conversation held by the Archbishop’s Council with the Adult Formation Advisers, Advisers for the Community Project for Inclusion and the Centre’s Administrator offers an opportunity to review the past year’s work and to look forward to the future.

The photographs show Archbishop Kevin displaying a copy of the revised Diocesan Sacramental Guidelines ‘Becoming More Like Christ’, copies of which were recently sent to all parishes and schools. The new guidelines for the sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation, Holy Communion and Confirmation were the initiative of Archbishop Kevin and were compiled following consultation with parents, catechists, clergy and teachers. They outline the gift of each of these sacraments, and describe how home, school and parish can work together in the preparation, celebration and living out of these sacraments.

Copies of ‘Becoming More Like Christ’ are available at £6.00 directly from the Christian Education Centre Bookshop which can be contacted on

In collaboration with the Archbishop’s Council and parishes, the Christian Education Centre seeks to provide opportunities for the ongoing faith formation of the people of the Diocese.
