A Catechist is a teacher and so much more — a disciple and witness — because a Catholic Faith Formation Catechist follows the guidance of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston to provide sound Catechesis. Sound Catechesis:
reflects gospel values and church teaching to encourage discipleship,
enables the spiritual growth and giftedness of all people,
is a lifelong, on-going process of education, formation and transformation,
reflects sensitivity to the multiple expressions of the family and supports the enrichment of the family,
responds to all ethnic groups in all diocesan geographical areas.
invites and empowers the community to assume responsibility for the ownership of its faith formation.
