Catechists in the Sale Diocese are involved in the teaching of children from government schools, preparing children for sacraments and children’s Liturgy of the Word.

In 2017 Bishop Patrick O’Regan launched a new teaching resource for catechists to teach sacrament preparation for primary school children. This resource is called Sacrament Preparation for Primary Students. See Prayer and Sacrament Resources for more details.



Formation for catechists is ongoing and cluster meetings are held in different regions of the Diocese. A two-day retreat is held each year, which is also part of catechist formation.

The Annual Mass and Gathering is held in the first term of each year at Warragul.

If you are interested in becoming a catechist or wish to access the teaching resource, please contact Barbara Durand.
