Top Reasons to Become a Catechist
1. You will grow in your own faith, learn the teachings of the Church, and deepen your relationship with Jesus.
2. Your Baptism calls you to share in Jesus’ ministry.
3. Children, teens, and adults in today’s world, more than ever, need to hear the Good News of Jesus.
4. Children, teens, and adults in today’s world, more than ever, need to encounter good role models of faith.
5. You have much to share with those you’ll teach, and with other catechists.
6. Today’s catechetical textbooks/resources offer outstanding support.
7. You’ll be challenged, you’ll have fun, and you’ll make new friends.
8. You’ll be helping people deepen their relationship with Jesus. (You’ll be evangelizing!)
9. You’ll be handing on a 2000-year-old Tradition that changes lives.
10. It’s our job: Jesus sent us to “go and teach all nations.”
Are you like most of your fellow parishioners? Too afraid to answer God’s call because you think you’re not the perfect person for the job? But here’s the thing: The perfect person isn’t here. The perfect person will probably never show up. But you are here, and you’re the one God’s calling right now, in all your imperfection. It’s OK to hold your breath, close your eyes, make the leap and offer to help. His grace will make up for your faults. So, if you are considering the invitation to serve as a catechist, please send a comment to Diane Downey (k-6) OR Angela LoMonaco (grades 7,8,9) and tell us what you’re thinking about. Also, feel free to ask any questions that you may have. Resurrection has lots of great catechists who would support you and share their thoughts with you about this wonderful opportunity!
