Catechists are volunteer teachers in our School of Religion. They are Catholics who educate the children of our parish in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Classes are on Sundays at 8:30 a.m. from September to June. Catechists must be fully initiated in the church, complete Virtus child safety training and participate in ongoing faith formation. We also have volunteer positions for catechist assistants.
