Why Should I Consider Being a Catechist?

You May Discover That You Are Really Good At It…

“I started teaching because I had to drop off the kids anyway, so I thought I might as well help out. Then I realized that not only did I enjoy teaching, but I was actually good at it !”

It’s not too early to be thinking about joining our Volunteer Catechist team!  We have many returning Catechists but, will still need a few more.  We will be  adding some fun, new and exciting ways to grow in our faith at St. Mary.  We will be offering training and support throughout the school year but would love to get a jump start right now!  Contact Crystal or Deb for information and to see how you might be able to share your gifts!
