What’s Involved in Being a Catechist
As a catechist, you’ll plan and teach classes throughout the year, with a co-catechist. You’ll have tremendous amounts of resources (printed, digital and human) at your fingertips to help you along the way. We know you may have questions or concerns; we’ve heard a lot of them over the years. Let us ease your concerns.
