Saint Nicholas is in need of catechists,
those willing to share faith with children in grades K-5.
Recruiting catechists is one of the most difficult challenges that a parish faces. We often think of these three things when asked:
- I do not know my faith well enough to share it.
- That’s something for other people to do
- It takes too much time
Becoming a catechist (teacher) is a matter of learning the techniques and being able to share faith. In addition classes are only 50 minutes on Sunday’s in between the Masses. It is very rewarding to watch the children of our parish grow in their faith while supporting the families here at Saint Nicholas.
If you are considering the call to serve as a catechist, call (757-340-7231) or email Steve Branning in the office to talk about the possibilities. There are primary leads for each class, a secondary lead for each class, and hopefully there will be a large number of substitutes that can fill in with ample notice. In addition if someone you know is considering the call to serve as a catechist, pass Steve’s name and email to them.
