Welcome to Missione Maria Ausiliatrice’s Catechism website. Missione Maria Ausiliatrice was built in 1984 to serve the community of Rivière des Prairies. When the Montreal school boards became linguistic, the church took on a more active role in teaching Catechism to the communities’ youngest members. In 2000, the Faith First office took control of the Catechism program. In 2013, the office of Faith and Family moved towards a new course of Catechism called, "Be My Disciples." This program is still in use today!
