Faith Formation is a life long process for each of us. We do however, have a program in place that will help form you, our Catechists, in the teachings of the Church. There are three parts to the program: Basic & Intermediate Catechetical Training and Master Catechist Certification. This program is based on an individual’s pace or can be accelerated should you so desire. Prior coursework will be considered upon request and evaluation. All Catechists at St. Ann are encouraged to participate .
For required courses descriptions visit the Diocesan Website: http://cathdal.org/files/Continuing_Catechetical_Formation_(CCF)_Handbook_(1).pdf
The plan is to have courses taught at St. Ann so that an individual could complete all programs in 5 years. Classes will be held in May/June, October and January/February of each year. More classes may be scheduled depending on demand.

Reading Church History goes beyond a series of facts that happened certain time in human history. On the contrary, we read our own history and how the spirited community saw herself immersed in human history. These events and actions are filled with joy and sorrow that remember an essential truth for us: We are the Mystical Body of Christ in human history, in the struggle to remain faithful to the Gospel, and to see ourselves as the mustard seed that should grow and bear fruit.
Course Cost: Registration Free - $10 for the book (optional)
Course is hosted in conjunction with the St. Ann Adult Religious Education Program.
Our goal at St. Ann is to have one Master Catechist in each of the Religious Education classes for our children. Bishop Kevin Farrell has identified Catechetical Certification as a primary need for our Diocese. If you are interested in attending classes at other locations then:
