    How many Parish Catechetical Leaders does a parish have?
    I know they have catechetical leaders that help do different things, doesn’t the Parish Catechetical Leader usually see over and help the others?

    • Archdiocese of Cincinnati Sidney Media Center Says:

      There are different levels of catechetical leadership and you are right that a parish may have several overseeing specific aspects of religious education.

      A parish could have a Director of Religious Education who oversees the total religious education efforts. Under him or her could be a leader responsibile for early childhood, one for elementary, another for junior high and/or high school, another for adult faith formation, another for sacrament preparation and another for RCIA.

      In some cases, there is no Director of Religous Education and each of the other leaders report to the Pastor.
