The Ministry of the Catechist is one of a partnership with families in our parish, wishing to bring their homeschooled, public schooled and private schooled students to the Sacraments of Communion and Confirmation, and in some instances Baptism. The privilege of walking along side families during this beautiful preparation phase is one of holiness.
Along the way, the First Holy Communion students encounter the person of Christ in their first Reconciliation, and then a few weeks later, the person of Christ in the Most Holy Eucharist. Students are encouraged to ask hard questions in this video and discussion based program.
Confirmation candidates are encouraged at a higher level to explore their relationship with Christ and why they are choosing the sacrament of Confirmation. Saints, Eucharistic Miracles and encountering Christ in every day life are themes we weave into our discussions, with video support.
Both programs currently use the Dynamic Catholic Curriculums.
Students needs are carefully considered, families are welcomed and encouraged into this process. Classes started January 12 so don’t delay- To register kindly call the parish office or speak to Samantha directly and for more information check out our “Becoming Catholic” page here
