What is Elementary Catechesis?
Catechesis is a year-long formation program in which your child will be able to build a closer relationship with Jesus Christ through prayer and understanding of the scriptures. Your child will also have a chance to make friends and build community with his or her class. Throughout the year we will have lessons as well as FUN activities on topics God, the Trinity, Mary, the Saints, and the Sacraments.
Volunteers: Catechesis thrives on volunteers. God is calling anyone who wants to serve God and His children in our community. If you are a parent, have considered this ministry, have either volunteered or taught school in the past, are interested in working in education or Religious field, or heard God’s call to serve, this is the program for you! Please be assured there are training opportunities throughout the Archdiocese as well as here in the Parish.
Other Ways to Help: In addition to those who can volunteer, we need help with contributing supplies such as paper, scissors, crayons, colored pencils, and markers, or other miscellaneous art supplies and activities. This is to help so we can have more fun activities for the children. If you would like to contribute with that – particularly if your child is in Catechesis – please let me know.. Experience has told us that the more volunteers we have helping out, the better the experience is for children and their families.
If Interested: Attending Elementary Catechesis, and/or volunteering, you may either sign up online, or if you would prefer, download and print out the appropriate form. All forms are on the right side.
You may also pick up a form in the back of church after Mass or stop by the Parish office during the week. Please bring forms back to Church, or scan and e-mail the forms.
