Catechists Needed

The Faith Formation Office is very fortunate to have many talented, knowledgeable and dedicated volunteer Catechists in our Religious Education program. 

We are currently looking to expand our staff.  If you think this is something you would be interested in doing, please contact:

Mrs. Madelaine WilliReligious Education Director

 We offer support for all our Catechists while allowing them to develop lessons that demonstrate and testify to their own faith.

ALL VOLUNTEERS must comply with the diocesan requirements for any volunteer in ministry with children.

This compliance involves:

~ completing a background screening
~ participating in a Protecting God’s Children session of VIRTUS
~ reading and signing the diocesan Code of Conduct

In order to do this you must go to the website:    

  • On the left side of the home page, click on the link for “First Time Registrant.” 
  • You will be taken to the page to complete the background screening.
  • Then you will be asked to register for a VIRTUS session. They are available by Zoom or in person.
  • Print out the Certificate of Completion at conclusion of training.
