For all Catholics, it is important to continue the life-long journey of growing in faith, especially as an adult Catholic. Learning never ends, and faith is a daily commitment. At Sacred Heart, we feel that as catechists guiding the young people of our parish, nothing is more important. Each Catechist is asked to attend in-service events as preparation as a catechist. In response to your commitment to the children of our parish, our catechists receive tuition reimbursement for their own children and, as a lead teacher, a stipend for preparation and instruction. We provide growth opportunities and ideas throughout the year for our catechists.
In addition to the in-services we have offered, there are options throughout the year to help our catechists grow in faith and knowledge of the Catholic truths that we teach our children. If you are in need of additional in-service opportunities, visit the GIFT page to see the many possibilities. It is your responsibility to contact Marcia Schaul by phone (225-6414 ext. 317) or email to let her know that you have attended an event. Please contact Debbie in advance to be sure the event can be approved. Below you will find ideas to help you fulfill your in-service commitment:
* If you attend a programs offered by GIFT such as a book discussions, Bible study, special interest workshops, etc.
* If you take an active leadership role in a parish organization such as Knights of Columbus, Women's Guild or one of our beautiful choirs;
* If you attend our Parish Mission, a Bible Study, or any Catholic faith based event in our diocese;
* If you participate in our Parish Day of Service (held in October each year), or another on-going service commitment.
