What is a Catechist?
The Catechist, then, is a Christian who is mindful of God, who is guided by the memory of God in his or her entire life and who is able to awaken that memory in the hearts of others.
Faith-filled adults and teens are always invited to share their faith with the children of our parishes. In many classrooms, an adult will lead and another adult or older teen will assist. Working as a team, our catechists and aides encourage the children to develop a deeper knowledge and love for Jesus. No formal teaching experience is required and complete lesson plans enable all volunteers to feel comfortable, even at their first class. Teen Confirmation candidates can complete all of their required service hours by assisting in an elementary classroom.
New catechists and aides are needed each year so that we can keep our class sizes low. Is the Spirit inviting you?
