This form should be filled out by the parents & child after prayerful discernment. The preparation process includes catechesis sessions for the parent and child to attend outside the regular weekly Faith Formation classes. The dates for these sessions will be provided at the Parent Meeting in August.

Este formulario debe ser llenado por los padres y el niño/a después de un tiempo de discernimiento en oración.

Children’s Faith Formation: Catechist, Assistants, Substitutes & Helpers
Please consider becoming a catechist, or assistant and help our children on their faith journey.
“The catechist, then, is a Christian who is mindful of God, who is guided by the memory of God in his or her entire life and who is able to awaken that memory in the hearts of others.”- Pope Francis
Are you one of somebody’s “Five”? Are you open to making a difference in the life of a child? Studies show that while parents are the most important influence in a child’s life, every child needs 5 other adults in their lives to guide them along the way. There are many ways to do this – as a Catechist, an Assistant, a Substitute, or a Small Group Leader for our Faith Formation children.
Any adult can be a catechist, assistant catechist, or substitute. High school youth can be helpers in various capacities. He or she must be actively living the Catholic Faith, eager to learn more about it, and willing to share it!
If you like to discern a role in Catechesis, Co-Catechesis, or Assistant, please contact: Frances Stadler at (407) 365-3231 x 105 or firstname.lastname@example.org
