Faith Formation


Catechists do not necessarily have the time;

they just have the heart 

Catechist Needed- Are you willing to help?

The success of the Faith formation of our Children is due, in part, to the generosity & dedication of volunteers. These volunteers, who become Catechists, or Catechist Aides, share their faith & love for Jesus while teaching the youth of our parish as they grow in faith. We are in need of volunteers for the upcoming 2022-2023 season, which begins in September. We will provide you with the training, tools, and support to assist you in this Ministry. If the Lord is calling you to be part of this Ministry, don't hesitate to get in touch with Faith Formation Office (760)868-4342 ext 221
