At the end of each school year, catechists in parish school of religion (PSR) programs and teachers in Catholic schools in the Diocese of Springfield in Illinois are honored for special service anniversaries.
Honorees for 2018-2019 receive a certificate. The catechist certificates are signed by Bishop Thomas John Paprocki and Christine Malmevik, director of the Office for Catechesis. Teacher certificates are signed by Bishop Paprocki and Brandi Borries, superintendent for Catholic Schools. Overall, 146 certificates were issued.
“We appreciate and congratulate these dedicated catechists and teachers for their ministry of discipleship formation,” said Borries and Malmevik, in a joint statement. “We pray for God’s blessing on them always.”
