Catechetical Services

The Office of Catechetical Services assists parishes/clusters with the Church’s mission of handing on and deepening the Catholic faith of all, specifically in the areas of Infant and Children Catechesis and the Formation of Families with Children. The office serves to help parishes as they provide programming for students that supports parents as the primary educators of their children in the faith. In addition, this office offers resources for Faith Formation Leader and Catechist recruitment, formation, and retention as well as in the areas of planning and administration. The office also serves as the first point of contact for preparation for the sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist, and Reconciliation.
