Catechesis Certification

 (a ministry of the Office of Catechetical Leadership, Youth and Young Adult Ministry)


Religious Education Certification is an official recognition by the Office of Catechesis and Leadership Development that a person has participated in a minimum amount of approved formational experiences intended to enhance one’s knowledge and skills as a catechist.


It is the responsibility of the Office of Catechesis and Leadership Development to establish norms for the certification of catechists and to approve programs and workshops through which persons can achieve the necessary hours of experience to merit one of the levels of certification (Cfr. NCD #218). These programs are available to all catechists involved in Parishes and Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Palm Beach.
