Love is an action; not a saying. Being a catechist… my little way of loving God…
Gracy Toh, Preschool Catechist
Thank you God for letting me grow with the children in faith and to serve joyfully…
Jenny Tan, P4 Catechist
I thought I was the one “GIVING” to the children, I have gained so much more from them and from the process. I have learned what service and stewardship is all about….. I do not need to be perfect, I just need to be available.
Bridget Lachica, CPL Catechist
Joining “CLAY” actually made me more involved with the Church and gives me a sense of belonging …. There is so much to be done, but so little helpers. Saying that you have no time is always an easy excuse, just put aside a few hours of your time and knowledge for the service of God and His Children, will actually make the Church a better place for our children to grow in their faith
Alan Tan, CLAY

    About the Catechetical Ministry

    The Catechetical Ministry provides on-going faith formation for baptized children and teens and prepares them for the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Holy Eucharist, and Confirmation.

    The ministry also conducts the Rite of Christian Initiation of Children and Youths (RCIC / RCIY) to prepare non-baptized children or youths to receive the Sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation, Holy Eucharist, and Confirmation.

    RCIC and RCIY also prepares baptized children and youths who have not progressed in their faith formation Catechism classes to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Holy Eucharist, and Confirmation.

    To enhance the faith formation of our parishioners where the word of God is proclaimed and the traditions of the Catholic Church taught in an effort to have the faith of all become living, conscious and active.
    Our Roles as Catechist:

    Your vocation from God is not only as a teacher of faith but also to walk in the footsteps of Jesus.

    • Promote the knowledge of faith.
    • Give moral formation.
    • Provide liturgical education.
    • Teach how to pray.
    • Educate for community life.
    • Initiate into the missionary dimension.
