Diocese of Lake Charles
Dear Catechists and Parishioners of the Diocese of Lake Charles,
Thank you for your commitment to enriching your knowledge of the Catholic Faith. A special thank you to those of you who are volunteer catechists and ministry leaders in our parishes for pursuing these courses in order to better bring a knowledge of the Catholic faith to the youth of our community. However, even if you are here for your “personal” benefit, we know that this can only bear fruit for the greater Church as we are all called to evangelize through a life of holiness. Whatever your reasons for being here, we pray that it will bring a new enrichment to your own life as well as that you can zealously share what you learn with others.
The Office of Religious Education is grateful for this partnership with the Franciscan University of Steubenville in this amazing program that they have created. The online courses can be used for Diocesan certification as a Catechist. You can speak with your Parish Catechetical Leader as to how specifically these courses will apply to that certification.
God bless you in your pursuit of truth and knowledge of our Catholic faith.
Sister Marirose Rudek, RSM
Director of Religious Education, Diocese of Lake Charles
