In order to serve as a catechist within our parish community, the Diocese of Greensburg requires volunteers to attend VIRTUS, a training program for those who work with children. Individuals must also sign the diocesan Code of Pastoral Conduct.
The diocese is required by law to ensure that all catechists have secured proper PA Child Services Law clearances, and designated parish employees can assist with this paperwork. Catechists are also required to receive basic and permanent certification through a diocesan training and certification program. Ongoing education opportunities are also offered by the diocese annually.
For more information, please visit the diocesan website, or contact us at the parish Pastoral Center.
