===== Could YOU be a Catechist??

Catechists DO NOT need to be teachers. They DO NOT need to be theologians. They DO NOT even need to be a “church lady” (or man). They DO NOT need to have all the answers. Catechists DO need to love Jesus Christ. They MUST want to share their faith with children. They MUST be prepared to have their own faith and love grow.
The School of Religion is looking for English speaking catechists on Wednesday afternoon/evening and Sunday mornings. Catechists are able to waive a portion of the Religious Education tuition for their children or grandchildren. We provide lesson guides, mentoring, support and instruction both in person or online. If you feel you are being called, please call Mary at 847-526-6400 x 239. We have been praying for you to join us.

He wants me to show the children the love He feels for us, and to teach how to love unconditionally, making Him our center of attention for everything that we do here on earth, working happily in our community.

Catechist Reflection from Magen

This quote is so profound. Through the ministry of Catechesis I have assisted in forming and transforming young minds to be like Jesus Christ. Teaching and molding not only minds, but hearts and spirits to walk in the ways of our Savior. This is perhaps the greatest reason for becoming a Catechist. Read more…
