Catechetical Ministry Mission and Goals
The purpose of the Office of Catechetical Ministry is to provide training for catechists and teachers throughout the diocese and assist them in fulfilling their mission of evangelization and catechesis.
Additionally, parish catechetical leaders are provided the opportunity for in-service and professional growth through the programs and conferences of the Organization of Catechetical Leadership (OCL).
The Pastoral Institute, the Annual Conference for Catechesis and Ministry and numerous workshops and programs provide opportunities for continuing adult faith enrichment
The Diocesan Library and Media Center is a great resource available to all people of the diocese and features books and videos on spirituality, scripture, prayer, liturgy, catechetical topics, morality, saints, church documents, and many more topics not readily available at a public library or book store. The library collection is fully searchable via the internet to allow easy access for all.
