There are mutually fulfilling opportunities and responsibilities between Echo and a host partner diocese. Echo is interested in working with partner dioceses that will enable participants to demonstrate their own commitment to the Church’s catechetical ministry. This includes, over time, opportunities for leadership and leadership formation as well as opportunities for apprentices to engage in a variety of ministries in service to catechesis. Sometimes apprentice service in a host diocese results in full-time employment opportunities in catechetical or related ministries.
Echo has partnered with 11 dioceses and Echo graduates have served in 29 dioceses, demonstrating the breadth and impact of the Echo approach to ministry formation.
