Supporting Catholics who Pass on the Faith

Office of Catechesis

The Office of Catechesis assists the archbishop in directing the catechetical mission of the archdiocese. We provide guidelines for parish catechetical programs and sacramental preparation, oversee catechist formation and certification, support catechetical leaders and provide guidance for their ministry and ongoing formation. We also offer resources for those who pass on the faith – catechists, directors of religious education, parents, lay leaders and clergy.
