Catechist Certification

“Since effective catechesis depends on virtuous and skilled catechists, their ongoing formation should enhance the human, spiritual, and apostolic qualities and catechetical skills they bring to their ministry…Since catechists nurture the faith that was implanted by the Holy Spirit in those being catechized, their formation should include training in catechetical methodology.  Catechists do not merely instruct their students about Christ; they lead them to Him.” (National Directory for Catechesis, 55.E)
