Catechetical Formation Program

The ministry of a catechist is a vocation, an interior call of the Holy Spirit. It springs from the Sacrament of Baptism and is strengthened by the Sacrament of Confirmation. Commissioned by the Church, catechists participate in a divine calling to teach as Jesus did. Catechists need to be prepared for their apostolate through appropriate catechetical training.

The task of catechesis is sharing the teachings of Jesus Christ in such a way that a person comes to know about and believe in God, enters a relationship with God and is transformed by him. The definitive aim of catechesis, then, is to put people not only in touch but also in communion and intimacy with Jesus Christ through word and sacrament.

We offer our Catechetical Formation Program to aid our catechists in their vocation. The goal of this programs is to help deepen their knowledge of the faith and develop their skills for effective faith formation.
