TEC and CLAY
Office of Faith Formation
On-Site Formation Team
The On-Site Formation Team is a ministry of the Office of Faith Formation that aids parishes by providing catechist formation. In order to accommodate the catechists’ schedules as much as possible, a presenter is sent on-site to the parish that requests the formation. Because catechist formation is so important, every year each parish can receive a 1 hour on-site workshop for free. There are various topics to choose from or we are happy to customize something for your individual needs.
To learn more or to sign up, contact Chris Barnard at [email protected]
