Catechist Formation

Our Mission:

To assist parishes as they facilitate the process of creating a culture of mature adult discipleship that is a living, fruitful and explicit profession of faith.   It is important to be mindful that  formation toward discipleship is essential.  This effort finds its inspiration amid the fullness of Christian life and the vision put forth in the following documents:
