Interested in serving as a Catechist or Youth Ministry Volunteer?

We are excited you are considering joining us in passing on our beautiful Catholic faith!  When we use the term ‘catechist’ we refer to all those who are participating in the task of bringing others closer to Christ in our Faith Formation program – this includes teens and adults, as well as those who serve as small group facilitators and session volunteers.
