GCCS Catechist Formation Classes

Save the Dates! January 23, February 20, March 19

Catechist Formation Information

As a GCCS teacher or administrator, we are required to attend specific courses for certification as a catechist. Deacon Paul Donnelly has graciously agreed to teach the courses.


Six different sessions will be held at St. John Vianney School on 3 different Saturdays. (Jan. 23, Feb. 20, March 19)


Each Saturday will have an a.m. session from 9:00 - 11:00 with lunch on your own from 11:00 - 12:00 and a p.m. session from 12:00 - 2:00. You can attend all day or just the a.m. or p.m. If you are staying all day, you can bring a lunch with you or leave and return. Each session (a.m. and p.m.) is listed separately below.


We ask that you RSVP so that we have enough materials.


Simply RSVP by signing up below the session you are able to attend. If you have any questions, call or email Kasey Cronin at (810) 235-1812 or kcronin@powerscatholic.org.
