Catechists (Religious Teachers)
All of our classes depend largely upon availability of volunteers to teach the classes and the attendance of the children after the classes start. Training is available and necessary for all catechists, new and returning, and that training will be provided.
There actually are several roles that you can sign up for:
The Religious Education Program is vital to preserving our Catholic legacy, and it is a rewarding ministry. There is no better way to instill the Catholic Faith in your children than by sharing in their religious education as a catechist.
In appreciation for this commitment to the youth of our parish, our full-time catechists pay half of the Religious Education tuition.
Please consider sharing your faith journey with our youngest parish disciples by teaching or assisting in our program. If you are interested in being a catechist (or another role) on Wednesdays, or in helping in other ways (volunteering to babysit or helping with our fund-raisers), please contact the Religious Education Office at 708-435-8960. Thank you!
