Religious Education Catechist: Grades 1 – 6

A catechist is a volunteer who shares the faith on an age appropriate level with the children of the parish. Classes are held in the school building for the Communion Program of grades 1 and 2, and for grade 6. Grades 3, 4, and 5 are held in the home of the catechist.

Catechists attend four catechist training meetings in the parish throughout the school year. All new catechists are asked to attend the diocesan initial certification program and are required to attend a one time, one day only diocesan safety prevention course called Protecting God’s Children. These courses are found on-line at thedioceseofjoliet.org.
