Family Faith Formation Volunteers

 

The Ministry of Evangelization & Catechesis would not be possible without our amazing volunteers!

The success of our faith formation program relies on our solid and consistent volunteers who, through their joy and love of God and His Church, help to communicate the Truth of the Gospel through their teaching and example.

Lead Catechists are confident coordinating adults in leading a group of children in songs, games, and sharing short teachings that are prepared for you by our staff. Catechists also use the online platform Martha to give short feedback and follow up with families as they complete their family meetings at home if in a sacramental prep year. Catechists have a strong grasp of Catholic teaching and are good examples of Gospel values in their own lives.

Aides have a strong love of God & His Church but may feel less confident in their knowledge of Church teaching. They support the lead catechist in managing the room and leading activities with small groups of elementary-aged kids. They may support the Catechists to provide feedback for family follow throughs on the Martha online platform. Aides are a good example of Gospel values in their own lives.

Middle School Small Group Leaders seek to accompany a group of 6th-8th grade children as they mature into their faith. They are good facilitators, using discussion based small groups to help students grasp the faith. They have a heart for young people, an openness to their questions, and an eagerness to share Jesus and His Church. They are a good example of Gospel values in their own lives.

Family Coaches are present to share their wisdom and accompany families. They lead a small group of parents at each family session and are available to help with questions about sharing faith at home and raising kids to be Catholic. They also provide feedback on family follow throughs for their small group of families via the Martha online platform. Family Coaches have a strong grasp of Catholic teaching and are good examples of Gospel values in their own lives.
