Many types of people volunteer to be religious catechists.
Maybe you’re a teacher not currently working in the field but still interested in offering your skills toward a worthwhile cause. Perhaps you’re retired but looking for ways to keep busy and make a difference. Or, maybe you recently graduated and are seeking some experience amidst a struggling economy.
No matter your situation, if you feel called to teach children the Roman Catholic faith, St. Mary Mokena is looking for you. Currently, the parish is short 8 catechists, which means 80 students have no teacher. By volunteering, you can help these children grow in their faith and grow closer to Jesus yourself.
Please take a moment to listen to a few words from our Jr. High Religious Education Director, and hear a couple returning catechists share their experience.
An added benefit to all catechists is free tuition for close family members! That means that if you become a catechist, your children, grandchildren, nieces, or nephews can attend our R.E. program for FREE. If you become a catechist assistant, family members get half off tuition.
