Welcome to the Office for Catechesis and Evangelization, which assists the Bishop, the chief teacher of the Diocese, in planning, implementing and evaluating evangelization and catechetical programs for families, children, adolescents, and adults. These initiatives of formation are to foster and guide the work of handing on the rich treasure of the Catholic Faith, which leads to knowing and loving Jesus Christ and serving Him by serving our neighbor.
In conjunction with this mission, the Office for Catechesis and Evangelization conducts training programs and offers support for parish and deanery directors or coordinators of religious education. It also assists in training school teachers and catechists in the use of the Diocesan Religion Curriculum and Virtue Program. The Office maintains the curriculum library containing reference and audiovisual resources as well as coordinates the Diocesan Religion Certification Program.
Finally, the Office for Catechesis and Evangelization oversees the work of Hmong Ministry and Ministry to Persons with Special Needs.
