CATECHISTS: Volunteer catechists are called to be “echoers” of the Good News. Catechists should be practicing Catholics who participate fully in the communal worship and life of the Church and who have been prepared by appropriate catechetical teaching. Catechist’s children receive free tuition. Contact the Religious Education director if you are interested in becoming a catechist.
