Catechists

Catechists are volunteers who give of their time, talent and prayer to walk with our Religious Ed students on their journey of faith. The volunteer staff comes from many different professions and backgrounds with the same focus - to share their faith with the children of our Parish.

Catechist Certification is required by the Diocese of Rockford.  All catechists are to take enrichment classes to deepen their knowledge of the Church and her teachings.  All catechists will be working toward being a certified catechist.  After certification, catechists are required to do continuing education to maintain his/her catechist certification and enhance their knowledge.  Many opportunities are offered throughout the year to become certified or renew your certification.

Volunteers are always appreciated and welcome in the R.E. programs. Training is provided as needed depending on the task. 

Safe Environment Training is required for catechists & volunteers age 16 and older.  Safe Environment training includes 2 parts:  Protecting God's Children online class & reading Safe Environment Policies for the Diocese of Rockford.  Click here to go to our Safe Environment page.
