We have a number of volunteers who work with adults and children in our catechetical ministries, including as an RCIA team member and in the Tuesday Religious Education program.

Religious Education Program Catechists 

Are you called to be a catechist? Grow in your faith, learn the teachings of the Church, and deepen your relationship with Jesus while you share your Baptismal call to share in this blessed ministry. You will be provided with support and resources by our Director of Religious Education and fellow catechists. The St. Alphonsus Religious Education program meets on Tuesday evenings.

FOCCUS facilitators help engaged couples preparing for marriage by providing the opportunity for deeper conversation and understanding of each other. As a trained FOCCUS Facilitator, you will have access to a proven and effective marriage preparation inventory with a user-friendly couple report. The FOCCUS Pre-Marriage Inventory Couple Report helps a facilitator target each couple’s discussion to topics important to marital success. The report is used to help couples celebrate their relationship strengths and talk to each other about topics warranting further attention.
