Yes, You Too Could be a Catechist
Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.
There is a shortage of volunteers instructing Catholic children in public schools within our area. Public schools in NSW offer Special Religious Education each week via a volunteer group. You do not need a PhD in theology. All you need is enthusiasm and a "can-do" attitude. Training is provided (predominantly online) as well as all of the class materials and on-going support.
Catechist or Scripture Teachers bring the message of God's kingdom through effective evangelisation by delivering quality Special Religious Education to Catholic students in State Government schools.

Our Parish is in need of new scripture teachers. Some of our classes are large. Even those classes with Special Religious Education teachers can also use an assistant.
If you have ever thought about becoming a catechist, now is a good time to respond and make an enquiry.
We have training available to provide new catechists and helpers with skills to enable them to teach, or assist an experienced catechist, in one of our public schools in 2022.
Would you like to be involved?
