Ministry Opportunities at St. Rose Religious Education & Faith Formation

The Religious Education Department is staffed by volunteers.

Children and adults gather weekly to learn about Jesus and His Church, to deepen their faith and to grow in their relationship with Jesus.

It is volunteer catechists, echoing their own personal faith and relationship with Jesus, who facilitate this process. Catechists are called to lead others toward growth in faith and understanding of the tradition. They are teachers of the message of Jesus; leaders in prayer; and witness in their lives of Jesus’ Gospel message of justice and mercy.

Volunteers serve weekly as catechists or assistants on Sunday mornings & Wednesday afternoons. Children 4 years old through the 5th grade gather at these sessions.

Others serve monthly as leaders for the Children’s Liturgy of the Word at the 9AM Mass.

There is a team who works with the 6,7,8th grades on Wednesday evenings.

The RCIA process is thankful for sponsors who have volunteered to take the journey with those becoming Catholic. Classes meet on Mondays from 7-9 PM.

There are special projects where help is needed. Volunteers are needed to coordinate the “lunches for the homeless”.

In other areas, coordinators are needed for monthly group projects: “Special snacks” coordinator; and other events that come up.

All adults who work with children are required by our Diocese to be fingerprinted and are to complete an online training on “Child Safety”.

Please contact Dona Gentile at the Religious Education Office for opportunity information. 916-783-5211 EXT 7010, thank you!
