Training for the New
Certification (Now Available!)
A top priority of Bishop Cary is to improve catechetical
competencies across the Diocese of Baker. In support of
this goal we are implementing the beginnings of a
catechetical certification program during the
2014-15 ministry year.
The primary people expected to participate in this
certification program is parish and school employees (full
and part-time) serving in a catechetical role (e.g.
Children’s Religious Education, Sacramental Preparation,
Youth Ministry, Young Adults, Adults, and RCIA). Volunteer
catechists for children, youth and adults are highly
encouraged to participate as well.
