Catechist for Religious Education

K-6 and 7-8

Religious Education is a program and experience of Jesus Christ. A catechist shares their faith and the children come to know and love God. With prayer, Scripture, doctrine, discussion and formative experiences the catechist forms the faith of each child. Religious Education and youth ministry are essential for every Catholic child from Grade K to 12. We need men, women and teens to witness and share God’s Word with our next generation. Responsibilities involve teaching and sharing faith with a small group of youngsters. In-service and training is provided locally and through the Diocesan Catechist Certification Program.
