Continuing education and spiritual nourishment are important to the life of a catechist. The SonFlower Region is committed to providing both at biannual conferences/retreats. They are a great time to see old friends and colleagues, to learn about important changes to materials or presentations, and, of course, to pray together.

The annual meeting of the entire membership is scheduled for the first Saturday of each November. Besides the election of board members, there will be an enrichment for our catechists. 

The spring retreat offers a gift of reflection on one’s personal journey of faith.
