Welcome to the Diocese of Buffalo Catechist Formation Site!

Well-formed catechists are those who can effectively share the Catholic faith in a way that is transformative in the lives of others. All who serve in ministry are encouraged to learn more about the Catholic faith and discover new ways to mentor and guide those they encounter.

In the Diocese of Buffalo, we ask that catechists have formation in two theological topics and one ministerial skill each year. This can be accomplished through online courses, live workshops, pre-approved resources listed on this site, or provided by the parish faith formation leader.

Use the tabs above to explore the variety of options available; if you have questions or concerns, please contact us at llff@buffalodiocese.org.
