Ministry Mission Statement: Our group of catechists, headed by a director, is responsible for the religious education of children in grades Pre-K4 through eighth who do not attend a Catholic school. More than 275 children are enrolled and there is always a need for more teachers and volunteers.

The Religious Education program of any parish is designed to support, not act as a substitute, for parental responsibility. The parish, through volunteer catechists, parish staff, and pastor, desires to work as a team with parents. Together we provide our children with a sound program to help them become disciples of Jesus Christ.

Our catechists are volunteers who give generously of themselves. They devote time to spread the message of our faith and to build up our faith community. Most are not teachers by profession; however, all possess a love of the Church and a desire to help our children grow in the love of Jesus. All catechists are required to:

  • Be in good standing with the Catholic Church, living their faith in their daily lives.
  • Attend regular catechetical meetings where continuing education takes place.
  • Conform to all Diocesan requirements including background screening, attendance at a Protecting God’s Children Workshop to educate them on prevention of child sexual abuse and how to recognize and report all forms of child abuse.

Current Ministry Activities: Develop and maintain the Internet Education Instructions and Educational Calendar.
