Word. Life. Mission.

It's Catechetical Sunday!

This weekend we acknowledge those "who serve our parishes by bringing the Word of God into the hearts of others."

All our parishes have dedicated catechists preparing our youngest community members to receive sacraments, better understand the teachings of our Catholic faith and to experience faith in community.

Do you believe that sharing your faith with others is important? Do you have a natural ability to teach or share information and ideas? Are you willing to learn more about your own faith as you prepare to teach others?

If so, consider being a catechist!

All the parishes in our cluster seek new catechists or those who want to learn the ropes by teaming up with another catechist or being an aide.

In particular, OLBS needs day program catechists for its after school program held on Monday and Tuesday. Contact Cathy Gibbons ( for more information. Being a catechist is also a great way for college students in educational disciplines to experience a classroom setting or to round out their schedules with community service.

Our cluster parishes also seek volunteers in their faith formation efforts. Please contact the catechetical directors for further information:
