Through Certification, the Catechetical Office identifies the Director or Coordinator of Religious Education as a significant member of the Archdiocesan Catechetical Leadership Community -- those people who put their competencies and skills at the service of the Catechetical Mission of the wider Church. (Archdiocesan Handbook, p. PF-31)

This is the necessary first step in the one-to-two-year supervision process, an essential requirement for certification. The day will consist in an orientation to the purpose and content of the supervision process. Participants will complete the self-assessment upon which the entire supervision process is built. All those considering supervision should consult their Regional Catechetical Directors before registering.
The Wisdom Gathering is an overnight spiritual and communal experience. It is the primary annual event for all Certified Directors and Coordinators of Religious Education. Additional information on the Wisdom Gathering.
