All Catechists and Assistants are volunteers….
- who have the time and ability to prepare and present sessions; communicate with children and adolescents, and develop a rapport with them.
- who are ordinary people, busy with families and jobs (most are not professional teachers).
- whose ordinary qualities are transformed into extraordinary ones through their openness to the power of the Holy Spirit in their lives and ministry.
Catechists are encouraged to patricipate in catechist formation sessions, offered in a combination of classroom and on-line sessions. They usually give two hours per week to preparing and presenting a session. Materials and supportive assistance are provided by the parish.
Opportunities to assist in our Faith Formation program:
- Catechist: a fully initiated, practicing Catholic, age 18 or older, who is the primary leader for a group of children or youth in weekly Faith Formation sessions.
- Assistant: a youth or adult who regularly assists the catechist in fulfilling their role.
- Office Assistant: an adult who answers the phone, records attendance and assists with other office duties as needed.
If your talents include music (singing or playing an instrument), drama, art, crafts, story-telling, etc. you could also assist in a variety of ways at specific times during the year.
