Ministry of Catechist—Teacher of the Faith

So keep this in mind:  I didn’t say to do the “work” of catechists, but to “be” catechists, because this is something that embraces our whole life.  It means leading people to encounter Christ by our words and our lives, by giving witness. ~ Pope Francis

Preschool-High School
Do you have a desire to grow and share your faith?  Do you love to work with children or youth?  Would you like to give back to the community the blessings you receive from God?  Is God calling you to the Ministry of Catechist?

We invite you to prayerfully consider whether this ministry is right for you.  Please call or email one of us if you are interested or would just like more information about this ministry.  You do not have to have a child or youth in the program to volunteer.

We look forward to you joining our “Catechetical Community of Faith.”  If you are interested, please contact us!
