What are CTS Reps?
CTS Reps are volunteers who take care of the book rack in their parish. By taking responsibility for CTS in their parish, they are helping to spread the Catholic faith.
What does a CTS Rep do?
As well as ordering for the parish and maintaining the rack, the Rep works with the parish priest and catechists to identify the best resources for the parish. The Rep also engages with parishioners to suggest publications that could help them grow in faith.
Why have a CTS Rep in my parish?
The CTS Rep relieves some of the burden of the Parish Priest, taking responsibility for evangelisation in the form of furthering the mission of CTS. Pope Francis points out that evangelisation happens “person to person”. This is why our Reps are so important, as by engaging in simple and friendly conversation with their fellow parishioners, they are building up relationships of trust and providing a safe place to ask questions.
How does someone become a CTS Rep?
The Parish Priest can appoint an enthusiastic volunteer to be responsible for CTS in the parish. Once that person has been appointed, let us know so we can welcome the Rep and provide support.
