Becoming a catechist is a vocation of great consequence to the economy of salvation. The very foundation of the Catholic Church depends on strong catechesis. Jesus commissioned His disciples to go and preach the Good News, announcing the dawn of a new era and presence of God among us. The hierarchy of the church is the suitable custodian of this mandate by extension, the mandate belongs to the catechist. This is because by their very nature, catechists echo the faith and speak of the things of God in the most comprehensive way. If you feel called to this service, do not hesitate to respond spontaneously. Do not wait another year, another month, or another week. God is calling you to engage now and to do something beautiful for Him by instructing His children.
To What Ministry is God Calling You?
Early Childhood Education: extra hands and loving arms are always needed with the youngest of our church. How much love can you give to these little angels? contact Melissa Perez at firstname.lastname@example.org
Working with Elementary Age Children: RE catechists are truly the face of Christ to their students, but there are some many other ways to support this ministry. What talents can you offer? Help introduce these children to Jesus? Contact Melissa Perez at email@example.com
Working with Middle School youth: These youth are "in between" being an elementary kid and a teenager. This is a time of discovery and they are ripe to learn about God. How can you help a young person discover Jesus? contact Erica Espinoza at firstname.lastname@example.org
Working with High School Teens: volunteers working with teens strive to make the Catholic faith relevant to the "real world" of the teenager. When ministering to teens, one quickly realizes how much these young people bring to the Church. How can you support the youth of our parish as they discover their own calling to be children of God? Contact Angela Behrens at email@example.com
World Youth Day
World Youth Day Six Flags tickets will be on sale during RE registration the last 2 Sundays in August. All middle school and high school youth that are registered can go. This year WYD will be on Sunday, October 19th at Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington.
