Certification for Parishes

Foundations of our Catholic Faith
Resources to Obtain and Maintain Certification

Parishes may offer the Catechist Certification Program as their adult education classes under the title Foundations of Our Catholic Faith. The basic scripture, theology and church history information is very useful in the Church's mission to evangelize its people. These classes help ensure that everyone has the opportunity to hear the gospel message, understand the Church's teachings and grow in the fullness of what it means to be a disciple of Christ. When offered through this program full credit toward certification is received.

Pastors shall approve the catechists prior to their appointment to the position of catechist.
