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
3 credits each for 2 Theological Topic
2 credits of 1 Ministry Skills
Monthly VIRTUS Compliance
Starting in April, the www.DOBformation.prg learning portal became available for catechist training.
Watch this webinar to learn how to register for training sessions and to track your own training.
You do not need to send a list to the parish as we have access to your Diocesan records.
