Catechist Formation


In choosing to become a minister in your parish or school community, you have taken a step that is one of the most important and rewarding in your life. You have answered God’s call, the call you first heard at your baptism. The call to the ministry of catechist is a vocation, an interior call, the voice of the Holy Spirit. (NDC, 228) The word catechist comes from a Greek root word that means “to echo.” Through your life and your teaching as a catechist you are a person who echoes the Word of God.
