Religious Education Volunteers


Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age. (Mt 28:19-20)

“Catechists share in one of the essential ministries of the church-teaching the faith.”

~Most Reverend Donald W. Wuerl
