Parish Catechist

Pass On the Good News! What good news? – The Good News of Jesus Christ and our Catholic faith! This fall, over 100 children and young people, 1st through 12 grade, will sign up to learn more about Jesus and the Catholic faith in our Religious Education and Confirmation program. At this time 30 children have no catechist to teach them, you can help them learn and grow in faith by becoming a catechist for Faith Formation. With classes offered Saturday mornings and Wednesday evenings you are almost sure to find a time that fits your schedule. As you nurture the faith of our young, you will learn and grow as well! As one long-time catechist put it, “I learn so much from the children!” We provide you with training, materials, and support. Classes begin August 30th and September 9, 2023. If interested or for more information, contact Avelina Jimenez at
