The Mission of the Office of Catechetical Formation and Education
The Secretariat for Catechetical Formation and Education witnesses to the Gospel through the teaching mission of the Catholic Church. We commit our expertise, experience, and energies to lead and assist those who carry out the educational ministries of the Diocese of Cleveland.
Dignity of Person
We believe in the dignity of each person, created in God’s image and likeness, loved and called by God to life everlasting. Therefore, we treat each person with respect and dignity.
We believe that we are responsible to fulfill our specific role in ways that properly utilize the environment and the resources entrusted to us.
We believe that each person is called to achieve full potential of mind, body and spirit. To enable the fulfillment of this potential we pledge to render service to all with sensitivity, compassion and commitment.
