Teachers Needed!


Anyone who has ever helped with Religious Education will tell you that one of the best ways to learn is to teach. While it is important that you have a basic knowledge and grasp of the teachings of the Church before you begin, you are not expected to have all the answers.

The resources and materials you will be exposed to as a catechist will refresh and expand your own knowledge and invite you to a deeper spiritual life.

No experience or prior education is required to be a catechist/teacher for our youth.The most important quality of a catechist is that they are a Catholic who faithfully practices their faith and have a desire to share that faith with young people. You may find that sharing your faith by teaching is a distinct and irreplaceable way you are meant to answer God’s great commission.

If you are interested in learning more and feel God is calling you, contact Barb Graybiel in the Religious Education Office at (815-547-7633).
