Are you a new DRE or a returning DRE for your parish? Have you just hired a new DRE for your parish? Coffee with Chris is a one-to-one chat over coffee (or your favorite hot beverage) where we can walk new DREs through best practices in the diocese, annual schedule, forms, current diocesan opportunities, PSR report, and anything else that is important to you. To setup a time to visit, contact Chris at [email protected]

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. 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 at [email protected]
