Elementary Faith Formation Catechists

Elementary Faith Formation is looking for faith-filled, energetic adults who are willing to spend an hour each week forming the children of our parish in our Catholic faith. Serving as a catechist is a great way for you to refresh your knowledge and understanding of our faith. Many people have found that being a catechist with your spouse or as the catechist for your child’s class can help to strengthen your family by introducing more opportunities to pray and focus on God together. All that you need to be a great catechist is a love of our faith and a desire to serve—the rest will be provided for you! Please contact Miriam Flores for more information at mflores@sfasat.org or 210-492-4600.
