Register Faith Formation Catechist Home » Forms » Register Faith Formation Catechist Volunteer Catechist Application St. Anne's invites its parishioners to pray and consider how they might serve the community through their God-given gifts. Catechists at St. Anne's are volunteers who help lead children to Jesus and instruct them in the teachings of His Church. We are seeking both lead catechists and assistant catechists to partner with parents in forming their children in the Faith.Scripture speaks the Truth: "Not many of you should become teachers...for you realize that we will be judged more strictly,for we all fall short in many respects.” (James 3:1-2) While taking on the role of catechist may be intimidating, the experience of passing on the Faith to the youngest members of the Body of Christ is one that allows for enormous personal and spiritual growth, one that will allow you to encounter God in new and unexpected ways.
