Religious Education Volunteers

All volunteers need to complete paperwork for a background check before class begin and then complete training for “Protecting God’s Children” within two months of the beginning of the Religious Education year.

Catechists spend one to two hours preparing a lesson plan for each 1-1/4 hr. class.  Class size is limited to 20 students with an aide in each class.  Participate in 3 catechist meetings during the year and complete classes required (for new teachers) by the diocese.

Catechist aides assist in planning as needed and help with classroom management.  Present the lesson should the Catechist be absent.

Hall Monitors assist students in getting to their classrooms upon arrival.  They also monitor students getting to and from the restrooms and hallways during class time.  May help out in classrooms in the event of an absence.
