Through a systematic study of Church teachings, as well as real, practical skills building, this process will help equip catechists to know, love and serve the Lord more deeply.  If you are a Catholic School teacher or a parish catechist in children’s catechesis, youth evangelization or RCIA/Adult faith formation, we invite you to prayerfully consider being part of this exciting new formation process.

Fall 2016 (Saturdays 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.)
