First in Taipa, then in Macau. The local Catholic communities are priming themselves for a new catechetical cycle. The new year begins a week apart in the two parishes. The Parish of Our Lady of Carmel, in Taipa, marks the beginning of the new catechetical year with the feast of the Holy Childhood. In the Cathedral of the Nativity of Our Lady, the new cycle will start a week later, with fewer catechists and something fresh: the rehabilitation of catechesis for preschool children.
