Preschool Catechists
Catechists for children ages 3 – Pre-Kindergarten provide formation for the children during the 9:30 AM Mass.  Ideal catechists for this group would be those who do not have children in this age group, so that the parents can attend Mass during class.  

Elementary Catechists
Formation Sessions for Grades K – 5 are offered on:

  • Sundays from 8:15 – 9:15 AM
  • Sundays from 10:45 – 11:45 AM
  • Wednesdays from 4:15 - 5:15 PM

Catechists are encouraged to remain in the same grade level each year to gain experience and expertise in the curriculum. 

An Elementary Catechist Advisory Board includes two lead Catechists from each grade level who provide a syllabus and coordinate lesson plans for the grade level.  This encourages collaboration among those who teach each grade and provides a consistent experience for all children.

Middle School Catechists
Formation sessions for grades 6 – 7 are held on:

  • Sunday mornings at 10:45 AM
  • Sunday evenings at 7:00 PM
  • Wednesdayafternoons at 4:15 PM
