Catechist Formation

St. Francis of Assisi Parish is very happy to be hosting Level 1 Part A Catechist Formation for Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, beginning this fall for those who wish to help children deepen their relationship with God through this Montessori style of catechesis. The formation program consists of six retreat-like sessions, one per month, from October 2022 to April 2023. Part B will be offered the following pastoral year. There is a cost to the program but scholarships are available.
