Every year God calls together an amazing team of catechists to lead our children and youth in Faith Formation classes!
If you are feeling called to serve as a leader or classroom aide for grades 7-8, or a Discipleship Group Mentor for grade 9 or 10, or Confirmation small group co-leader for 11th grade, please contact Tessa.
Here is what some of our catechists are saying:
"I became a catechist because I felt a tugging at my heart even when I thought I didn’t want to be one and thought I wasn’t qualified. It is a true joy to be a part of the youth’s faith journey, especially when you witness one of their ‘aha’ moments. My faith has grown a lot as well." ~Alisa Raehsler
"It is an extraordinary honor to have been able to mentor a group of St. B's 10th graders through a year of their Confirmation formation. I didn't think I'd be able to do this for two years in a row, but my beautiful students really wanted me to journey with them for their second year of study/prayer. How could I resist? They're an inspiration with all of their many graces of youth while each pondering life itself and why God put us here. Guess who got the most out of this relationship? You got it! Me." ~Marius Andahazy
"For two years, I had the opportunity to serve in a Catechist role as a small group leader for Confirmation. I love seeing the 10th and 11th graders grow in their faith throughout their two-year journey. I have learned so much from them and their perspectives as they make their faith journey toward getting confirmed. I leave each Wednesday night feeling renewed in my own convictions. These young adults inspire me as I journey on the path that God has laid out for me." ~Gretchen Stoffel
The fee for FF is $80 for the first child, and $100 for two or more children.
This is a “flat fee” and covers whatever options you feel will help you share your faith with your children. (There is not an additional fee for sacrament preparation, or for doing both the At-Home program and the classes, etc.) However, we understand that times are difficult for many people. If this fee creates a hardship for your family, please call Diane (425-1879 x105, ChildrensFF@stbparish.com) or Tessa (425-1879 x106, TeenFF@stbparish.com). All information is kept confidential.
