Ministry Mission Statement:  

Our mission is to spread the message of our faith and to build up our faith community with volunteer catechists who possess and are willing to share a love of the Church and a desire to help our children grow in the love of Jesus. 

Catechist Requirements:

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, taking the Safe Haven, "It's Up To You" online course to help with the education on how to prevent child sexual abuse and how to recognize and report all forms of child abuse.

Current Activities: Regularly scheduled classes through May 2022.  See calendar below.
