"A catechist, commissioned and supported by the parish and pastor, is entrusted with the important role of formally presenting the story of Faith to our young people in a way that enables them to see and experience faith as a 'living reality.'
Just as the pastor gathers the parish to celebrate and share in the life of the Spirit alive in the faith community, so the catechist gathers the children and creates opportunities for them to experience the meaning and importance of Jesus in their lives.
A catechist is faithful to the past, open to the future, but especially dedicated to deepening the faith of the present generation.
A catechist is an ordinary person who is extraordinary because he or she teaches as Jesus did."
If you are interested in becoming a catechist please call George and Anna Peko at (440) 442-3410 ext. 107.
