Got Faith? Pass it on, and be a Catechist or Assistant Catechist!
As this year winds down, and we begin registration for the Fall, I hope you will prayerfully consider sharing your talents as a Catechist. We support you along the way with practical training in class management, discipline strategies, and how to make a lesson plan as well as faith building trainings.
Join this rewarding ministry now! Contact email@example.com (K-6) or firstname.lastname@example.org (middle school/high school) if you are interested or looking for more information. If you have a passion for your faith and an eagerness to share it - you will be perfect!
