Thank you for expressing interest in a religious education leadership position for a parish/school of the Archdiocese of St. Louis. This is a special ministry which requires spiritual, educational and administrative gifts to help the parish fulfill its mission of total Catholic education. The St. Louis Archdiocese offers a rich diversity in the character and organizational structure of its parishes and missions, in the city, county and rural areas. Many of these parishes support a Catholic elementary school as well as a parish school of religion for children from the public school.  Many also offer programs for other age-levels and groups, including faith development of adults, youth ministry, pre-school age programs, catechumenate programs, sacramental preparation programs, Liturgy-of-the-Word for Children, Vacation Bible School, etc.  Some parishes look for a Director of Religious Education (DRE) to direct some or all of these efforts, and other parishes hire a part-time or full-time Coordinator of Religious Education (CRE) to coordinate one or more of these ministries. 

Applications and forms may be found below.
