Religious Ed Catechists and ALL Invited…..
The ministry of CATECHESIS is one where we are called to literally “echo and re-echo the GOOD NEWS of Jesus Christ!” A CATECHIST is one who serves as a witness for Christ in ordinary things that occur in everyday living.
As Pope Francis tells us, “A Catechist is one who is called by God in very simple ways, to lead all people to encounter the Living Christ!…Catechists and ALL of us are called to proclaim the announcement of God’s love, and participate fully in the Life of Christ!” This “work” happens every day, everywhere….riding the T….stuck in traffic…in the store….walking in the neighborhood… carpooling to sports/activities….. meeting at the local school…..at the place of employment.… and wherever we happen to be!
St. Louise de Marillac has always been blessed with a wonderful group volunteer Catechists who are dedicated to sharing and teaching The Faith to our Parish children. Their time and efforts are a blessing to us all. And NOW is YOUR TIME….have you ever considered “pitching in,” and helping with the process. As we all know…many hands make light the work. So why not consider being part of this process…on behalf of your child(ren)….. your parish family….. and your God???
We are always most grateful for all the many volunteers who offer their time and talents to inspire our youth! Many, many more are needed. Please feel free to contact the Faith Formation Office @ 412-835-1155 ext. 227 or firstname.lastname@example.org at any time to find out how you can be part of the St. Louise de Marillac Catechetical team! ALL questions, inquiries and information requests are important. Your consideration is GREATLY appreciated. Thanks!
Religious Ed Substitutes Welcome…..
Please, also, consider helping as part of our Substitute Catechist Team!
This is not a huge commitment, but is most helpful when out Catechists are unable to be present.
