EXCITING NEWS!  Registration is now open for the 2024 Catechist Formation Day which is taking place on Saturday, March 23rd from 9 AM-3 PM at the Co-Cathedral of St. Robert Bellarmine, Freehold.

Join storyteller, author and encourager Julianne Stanz as she speaks to us about “The Power of Witness.”  Each one of us has a faith story.  Julianne will help us discover our story and provide practical ways we can share it with all those we serve in ministry.

Julianne will also be speaking about the “Catechist’s Backpack:  Spiritual Essentials on a Joyful Walk on the Pilgrim Path”.  All those who attend will receive a copy of the book, The Catechist’s Backpack by Julianne Stanz and Joe Paprocki!

Last year over 200 catechists attended the catechist formation day!  This is a wonderful opportunity to grow in your own faith life and as a catechist.  It is also a time to come together with others in ministry to connect and share.

The day includes Mass, lunch and breakout sessions.  Register today


You will receive $ 175 tuition discount for teaching.
