This role provides a rare opportunity for a person who is committed to the totality of the New Evangelization and is looking to serve in an expansive and dynamic role.

Administrative responsibilities include scheduling, communicating and logistics for all Office of Evangelization and Catechesis events, editor of a monthly eNewsletter highlighting diocesan ministry initiatives, maintenance of existing online (web) pages, development and promotion of new online media tools in collaboration with the ministry team.

This position requires travel (averaging 25%) to parishes and schools throughout the diocese to meet with staff and volunteers. This role also serves as a member of a training team for various ministry leadership and catechetical workshops. Proficient bi-lingual (Spanish and English) written and oral skills are preferred, but we will consider all qualified candidates.
