We are delighted to welcome back to Singapore the founding formation leaders who have set ablaze the light of the Catechesis of Good Shepherd here. This Day of Recollection presents a rare opportunity to meet these formation leaders as they lead us into deeper reflection of our work. We invite all current, past and future CGS catechists to join this gathering as we journey with the children.
Anne Delsorte has been the Vice-President of The Association of The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Australia since its inception. Anne’s involvement with the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd began in 1996 in Brisbane, where she currently works with children in the Graceville Atrium. She has also been serving as Formation Leader since 1999 and as member of the International Council for CGS since 2007. Together with Mary Hare, Anne was integral in bringing the catechesis to Singapore, having conducted the first formation here in x and formed many more batches of catechists in Asia since.
Anne Diamond currently oversees the Executive Committee of The Association of The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Australia, having been elected to the Board in 2018.
