Religious Education Ministry

A catechist should be a person whose life bears witness to that faith. A catechist needs to have an understanding of basic teachings of the Catholic Church and a willingness to teach it. We have a home study course that can be started at any time for those who want to refresh their knowledge of church teachings.

Classes are in session from September through May.

Preschool – 5th grades: Catechists are needed to share their faith in a classroom setting with another adult teacher. Classes are held Sunday mornings 9:15-10:30AM.

6th-8th grades: Catechists are needed to share their faith with small groups, lead group discussions and activities, and to possibly present topics to the large group. Classes are held on Wednesday 6:45-8:15PM.

High School Youth Group: meets on Wednesday from 6:45-8:15PM. Adults are asked to share their faith, facilitate discussions, and occasionally chaperone outings.
