The certification program was reaffirmed by the California Conference of Catholic Bishop in the recent revised document Guidelines for Formation and Certificate of Catechists and Master Catechists (May 2009). It is this document that forms the foundation of the certification process within the Diocese of Orange and provides for a professional approach to the teaching of religion and the formation of faith.

This certification provides students with a firm foundation in the Roman Catholic Tradition. This program is designed for professional and ministerial educators.

It is required that the catechist consult with the director of IPM throughout the duration of completing the Master Catechist Project. This is to discuss and identify what will best contribute to the growth of the candidate s spirituality and ministerial skills.

After the IPM Office receives project proposal, our office will contact candidate for meeting to discuss the project. CATECHETICAL PROJECT OUTLINE The Catechetical Project consists of three parts.
