Catechist Formation

Jesus gave us these words in Matthew 28:19-20:
“Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.” 

This command from our Lord is what catechesis is all about.  In becoming a catechist you will undergo training to prepare you to be a teacher and evangelist to your community. It will deepen your faith.

Catechesis is the act of spreading the Word of God to the parish faith community.

So, who is a catechist?
  • a practicing Catholic
  • called to share faith with God’s people
  • willing to satisfy the Archdiocesan requirements for working with young people
  • able and eager to continue in adult faith formation
