Guideline for Ongoing Formation
Like all Christians, catechists are called to continue conversion and growth in their faith. Lay men and women who answer the call to serve as Religious Education catechists and Catholic school teachers provide a tremendous service to the Church; because they lead children by constantly striving to follow Christ ever more closely.
Therefore, catechist & catholic school teachers are required to complete a minimum of six (6) hours of faith formation each year.
