The Diocese of Grand Rapids offers a certification process for catechists working with any age group.  The process is geared toward forming the catechist in spirituality, methods, and theology.  St. Francis de Sales strongly encourage all of our catechists to become certified.  Click here to learn about the certification process.

Visit back to this webpage in the near future to learn about upcoming opportunities to attend sessions and workshops that will help you achieve certification.  You can also contact our Faith Formation staff about beginning this process.
