“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you…” Psalm 32: 8 


Catechist comes from the Greek word meaning, “to echo.”  Our catechists are the most essential tool in God’s hands as he forms the hearts and minds of the young disciples in our classrooms. Representing Christ the Teacher, they teach not only the truths of the faith by their words but they “echo” his words by the witness of their very lives.


Those interested in accepting the call to be a catechist at Our Lady of the Lake will need to meet with the Director of Faith Formation.

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41: 10  


Working in the vineyard of the Lord at Our Lady of the Lake takes many hands. Each classroom is assigned one catechist and one aid. The role of the aid is to assist the catechist by working closely with the children in classroom management, supplies, snacks, and regularly assisting children in their participation. If you like helping with crafts, thinking of snacks, and engaging the children in creative ways this role is for you!

“I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.” John 14: 18  


We need a strong community of willing persons to step in and assist our children when their catechist/catechist aide is unable to come in. Although we make every effort to get requests out at least a week in advance, this role may have last-minute requests to assist.  This is currently our biggest need in our programs.
