Education for Ministry Program

The Education for Ministry Program is open to all catechists of the Diocese: Catholic School teachers, Directors of Religious Education, Parish Catechists, R.C.I.A. teams, Youth Ministers, and those who are charged with handing on the faith to others (which includes all Catholics!).

Those who complete all seven courses can receive Basic Certification as a catechist from the Office of Catechesis, but only Catholic School teachers who teach religion in Kindergarten- Grade 8 are required to pursue certification.

Please note: There is now no course fee for anyone participating in the Education for Ministry program.
