A Morning on the Mission of Catechesis: It is a great privilege to be a catechist, to participate in Jesus’ missionary mandate. Being a catechist also spurs in us the desire to continue to grow in our faith and to deepen and broaden our own discipleship. In the morning session, we will pray together and explore Jesus’ missionary mandate and what it means for us today as catechists in the parishes and Catholic schools of the Diocese of Saginaw. 

An Afternoon with the Basics of Catechesis: The afternoon session covers some of the basics for catechists and explores the resources and techniques available to help launch catechists into this new adventure with Jesus and his young disciples. It is offered in conjunction with “A Morning on the Mission of Catechesis” to satisfy the requirements for Basic Catechist Certification, or as a refresher for those already with certification. Peg McEvoy is the diocesan Coordinator of Faith Formation.
