Pass It Forward
Over 100 children and young people, preschool through grade 12, will sign up this fall to learn more about Jesus and the Catholic faith. You can help them learn and grow by becoming a catechist for Faith Formation. With classes offered Sunday mornings from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., you will find that this fits your schedule easily. As you nurture the faith of our young, you will learn and grow as well! As one long-time catechist put it, “I learn so much from the children!” We provide you with textbooks and an instructor’s manual, as well as supplies and support. Classes begin on Sept. 8. If interested or for more information, please contact Sue Pickett at 330-527-4105 (rectory) or 330-204-5568 (cell).
