A catechist is a person of
faith who has the task of creating the atmosphere of the Holy Spirit to
bring about growth among believers. They foster mature faith through a
regular systematic presentation. The primary mission of catechists is to
communicate God's love to those entrusted to their care by proclaiming
the Good News of Jesus Christ. This is accomplished through the
activities of the message, community, worship and service.
Our parish Religious
Education program is served by volunteer catechists, aides, hall
monitors and babysitters. All employees and volunteers of the Diocese of
Metuchen who have contact with minors must undergo a criminal history
background check and fingerprinting in accordance with the Policy on
Criminal History Background Checks. All volunteers in our parish program
have completed this requirement.
