Faith development is a lifelong process through which we continue to come to a deeper understanding of our life in Christ. A call to the ministry of catechetics also necessitates ongoing formation and continual skills development.
Therefore, once catechists have achieved Advanced Certification, they consistently participate in ongoing formation opportunities that foster faith growth and expertise in the Church's catechetical mission.
From the Archdiocesan Catechetical Policy #7:
"After achieving advanced catechist certification and in order to maintain certification, a catechist is responsible for ongoing formation approved by the Parish Catechetical Leader or Adult Faith Formation Coordinator."
