The Office of Religious Education helps inspire, educate and animate parish religious education teachers and the children, adults and families they help bring in to the Catholic faith. We help parishes nurture and sustain the Catholic faith formation of children, adults and families.
We offer Basic and Master Catechist Formation training, certification and other programs and resources (in both English and Spanish) for persons called to work in discipleship in their communities.
We also help parishes form active youth ministries and help local families find one near them, including Catholic Scouting. The following pages describe "Becoming Catholic" and detail our faith formation program.
