Attention Potential Catechists!
At the end of Matthew's Gospel, Jesus tells his apostles, "Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations." All of us are called to take up Jesus's mission in some way. One major way we do this in our parishes is through religious education. Our ministry staff is always on the lookout for mature disciples who want to serve in children's and youth ministry.
There are two main criteria:
a.) you are invested in your own faith.
b.) you have a desire to share your faith with others.
Each ministry has specific areas of responsibility, but they basically fall into those categories. All catechists/leaders need to complete and stay updated with Safe Parish training.
Here are our current needs, as of July 2022:
|Ministry||Time of Week||Time of Year||Description:||Contact Leader:|
|Small group leaders for 8th, 9th grade youth ministry||Sunday night, 7:00-8:30 pm.||Sept-April (summer ministry optional)||Lead or co-lead a small group of 6-12 teens; build relationships and guide in faith.||Jeffrey Kremer|
|Small group leaders for 7th grade youth ministry||Wednesday evening, 5:30-7:30 pm (includes 7 pm Mass)||Sept-April (summer ministry optional)||Lead or co-lead a small group of 6-12 teens; build relationships and guide in faith.||Jeffrey Kremer|
|Grades K-6 classroom catechists||Wednesday evening, 5:30-6:45 pm||Sept-April||Lead or co-lead a class of 10-20 children; using Christ in Us curriculum.||Chris Stier|
Whether you've helped in the past, or are looking for a new way to serve in the parish, our ministry team is happy to set up a conversation with you (no pressure and no initial commitment required). We look forward to working with you!
