Catechist Formation Topics

Picture

The response to the call to be a catechist includes a willingness to give time and talent not only to catechizing others, but also to one’s own continued growth in faith, understanding, and skills. Catechist formation topics provide the catechist with the basic foundation for ministry through the study of topics in the areas of Scripture, theology, sacraments, and learning methodology. Catechist certification topics are offered at St. Blase at various times. These opportunities for formation and education are not just limited to catechists; all adults are welcome! More information about upcoming workshops can be found on the Becoming A Certified Catechist Page.

WOMEN’S FRIENDSHIP BREAKFAST

These events provide adults with a morning of fellowship, song and prayer featuring a special guest speaker who addresses issues faced by adult Christian men and women. Each event includes a catered breakfast.
