Our Catechists (teachers) share the Word of God and our Catholic beliefs with their students. Through their ministry, we pray that all of our children will be brought to a profound love for God, the Church, self and the community.

Volunteers are needed for teaching positions and for assistants to the teachers to instruct parish children, grades 1- Confirmation. Opportunities to help in this program with smaller time commitments are available as well. Classes convene in mid-September and continue through May on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings.

Requirements: Catechists must be practicing Catholics, be registered parishioners in good standing at Mary, Queen of Heaven Catholic Church, and be approved by the Director of Religious Education and Pastor. All volunteers who work with children must complete a Protecting God’s Children Training Class and Level II Background Check.
