WHO ARE WE?
Mareda is an independent association of catechetical leaders in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. We gather regularly to pray, educate ourselves, share ideas, discuss current issues, and enjoy Christian fellowship.
We go by many titles:
Directors of Religious Education
Coordinators of Christian Formation
Directors of Child Ministry
Directors of Youth Ministry
...but our goal is the same: to lead others to Christ through excellence in Faith Formation.
The members of Mareda, an independent association of catechetical leaders in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, affirm our role with the people of God and recognize
ourselves as sharers in the ministry of Jesus Christ in the Catholic tradition. We commit ourselves to mutual support, professional development, and working cooperatively with other professional ministry associations.
Who can join?
We welcome as members anyone who directs or coordinates (part-time or full-time, paid or unpaid) a Faith Formation, Religious Education, Child Ministry, or Youth Ministry program at a Catholic parish in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee.
