Catechist Certification



Catechist Certification


Many programs offered at the CIC may be taken for credit toward Catechist Certification for the Diocese of Grand Rapids.  After attending the class in person, watching it live or as a video on demand, go to the Catechist Certification Credit Form.  Fill out the form and answer the reflection questions.  The completed form needs to be printed and submitted to your parish Religious Education Director.

Content Dimensions (CFD) are listed at the end of each program description.
Spirituality – The personal spiritual growth and development of the Catechist/teacher
Theology – Having a deep understanding of the foundations, mysteries and sacramental basis of the Catholic faith.
Evangelization – Things that we do for the other, i.e. go out to them, learn methods, techniques, processes for teaching, learn ways of spreading the Gospel.
