Our United States Conference of Bishops in the National Directory of Catechesis state:
"Catechists are called to continual conversion and growth in their faith and,
for this reason, are called to ongoing spiritual formation." NCD, 55C
Well-formed catechists are those who can effectively share the Catholic faith
in a way that is transformative in the lives of others.
In our Diocese, all catechists are to complete 8 hours
of Catholic formation/theological education annually.
Each Year, Catechists Must Attend
