St. Raphael Catechist Leadership Calendar


Catechist Ongoing Formation and Certification
Diocese of Joliet

Catehists and Catholic School Teachers are to participate in faith formation events that support their ministy. They need to be life-long leaners who pursue faith formation in the areas of spirituality, theology, and methodology. Faith formation experiences can be recorded on the Catechetical Record Form which can be found below and submitted to the St. Raphael RE office. Catechists are asked to complete six hours of ongoing formation per year. These hours can be earned in Foundations of Faith sessions, parish training or regional events, diocesan offerings, or approved online studies.
