In-Person Catechist Certification Classes
The Catechist Formation and Certification Program of the Diocese of Rockford seeks to prepare catechists to impart faithfully the teachings of the Catholic Church in parish religious education programs and Catholic Schools
Please keep a record of the classes or courses you participate in, and notify your parish catechetical leader (Director of Religious Education, Director of Youth Ministry, or Principal) of what classes or courses you have taken by completing the Catechist Learning Assessment. They will keep track of your classes or courses and grant certification upon completion of 6 hours for Prerequisites, 10 hours for Level I, 22 hours for Level II, and 18 hours for renewal.
The classes listed below are in-person and listed by where they are located within each deanery. They will have an indication for if they are a pre-requisite, Level I, Level II, or elective class.
