Staff.  Catechists and Junior Catechists volunteer to teach and assist in all the programs offered.  There is always a need for individuals to share their gifts and their time.  Catechists teach young people about the Catholic faith and make a real difference in our children’s spiritual and moral growth.   A catechist should be a practicing Catholic with a desire to evangelize and lead others to Jesus.  They should have a willingness to attend courses to further their understanding of Scripture, Spirituality, and Methodology.
