On Sunday, September 15, 2013, Carlos Camacho went home to God. Carlos was a catechist and coordinator of religious education at Blessed Sacrament in the East Bronx. He is being waked at the Montera Funeral Home, Bronx, on Friday from 2pm to 9pm and will be buried in Saint Raymond Cemetery on Saturday, after a funeral mass at Blessed Sacrament. Carlos was also coordinator of religious education at St.Vito's in Mamaroneck. We will remember him for his very creative art work at the Convocation and Forums. Carlos was a lovely, creative faith-filled catechetical leader. We unite in prayer for Carlos and for his grieving family.
Carlos wrote this brief statement on his vocation as a catechetical leader:
I regard as the primary responsibilities of the Director or Coordinator [of Religious Education], is to see that the Gospel message of Jesus Christ is preached in its entirety, in a safe, prayerful environment. This is best done by following the directives of the Archdiocese, spending time in prayer, and studying scripture and educating oneself in the faith. Most importantly living out that faith in one's personal life is the challenge of all Christians and in all Catechetical leadership.
May the Lord grant Carlos the reward of a faithful servant in the kingdom of God.
