Catechist Formation

Current Course Offerings

The Good Shepherd calls his sheep by name. Is he calling you to listen to God with the children?

SonFlower Region’s formation courses are listed below, with links for registration. If you’d like to spread the word about our work, you can download fliers for each level here.

Courses are guided by the standards set by the U.S. Association of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd and the International Council of CGS (Consiglio). They require a minimum of 90 hours of class time for Level I, 96 for Level II, and 110 for Level III. Schedules are set by the hosting parish/school and the formation team. Courses generally are offered in two parts, with certification requiring completion of both parts.

The SonFlower Region is conscious of the need to protect our most vulnerable people from COVID-19 and its variants and will continue to follow local, state, and federal guidelines. Requirements may change during a course, and if so, formation leaders and hosts will inform participants. It is expected that any participant feeling ill will not attend class. When in doubt, wear a mask no matter what your vaccination status. The Region is not responsible for your choice. It is a charity to protect those who are most at risk.
