We welcomed 23 new Directors for Catechetical Ministry/Faith Formation Coordinators from 16 parishes in our diocese! We held an intense day of training that will equip our leaders with the tools, resources and information to make them successful in their new roles. The orientation entailed presentations from the Office for Schools, Human Resources, Catholic Mutual, Missions, Evangelization and Catechetical Ministry. The day also included a practical catechist recruitment activity from an experienced Master Catechist along with a presentation from a Pastor and Pastoral Associate on best practices and effective communication skills with your Pastor and pastoral team. We are thankful to God for their YES to serve. Join us in praying for these new ministers and all those whom they will be serving in their respective ministries. Special gratitude to our panel of presenters for sharing their time and wisdom.
