What is the Catechist / SRE Ministry

Catechists present regular lessons or seminars to classes in public schools. They are screened, and trained to follow the Catholic program which the Bishop has authorised.

Our amazing program, Walking with Jesus consists of easy to follow lesson plans, engaging activity books and exciting audio visual resources. This is a vibrant and joyful ministry because catechists have the privilege of sharing the 'joy of the gospel' with the children of our parish.
