Catechetical Certification

The catechetical certification process in our diocese is one that ensures the readiness and formation of catechists and catholic school religion teachers through the Basic Catechist Formation Certification Course. It is a common task that we, as agents share in the mission to evangelize and catechize in the life of the parish, family and our Catholic schools.
