You have answered God’s call. The call to the ministry of catechist is a vocation, an interior call, the voice of the Holy Spirit. The word catechist comes from a Greek root word that means “to echo.” Through your life and your teaching as a catechist you are a person who echoes the Word of God. Your “yes” is an important part of living out your baptismal promises. Our Online Classes give you the tools you need to proclaim the faith and lead others into a relationship with Jesus.
Please consult our Events page for ongoing formation through such opportunities as Catechists morning (September), the Annual Faith Formation Convocation held at Bryant University in March, and other opportunities right in your own parish. The Rhode Island Catholic, our Diocesan Newspaper, is also a weekly resource which highlights faith as lived out in people’s lives, parish communities, and in culture.
