St. Philip Neri Parish catechists minister to all the people of our parish: children, teens, young adults--their parents--and adults of all ages. Any catechist working with children or youth must be Safe Environment trained first.
The following are personal traits of one who is called to be a catechist:
♥ an active faith life expressed in the worshipping community;
♥ an interest and concern about people’s growth in faith;
♥ an ability to relate well with others;
♥ an integration of prayer into one’s personal life;
♥ a willingness to be of service to the Church;
♥ a sense of humor and flexibility.
The catechist realizes that it is Christ’s message which he or she is called to proclaim.
If you think you have been called to be a catechist, you are welcome to come to one of our monthly meetings. We meet the second Sunday afternoon (of most months) immediately following 11 a.m. Mass (approximately 12:15-12:30) downstairs in the MacAulay Room. Food and drinks are provided in turn by the catechists and myself. Everyone is always welcome to bring something to share. For more information,
