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, "Be My Disciple." This program is still in use today. 

***Important Notice***

Student workbook will be available the first week of October for pick up please refer to website for details.

The first step begins with you!  


You may have a friend or family member who has never been baptized, or baptized in another Christian faith, or has not been confirmed. An acquaintance or coworker may have asked you questions about the Catholic Church. Someone may indicate to you they are searching for a sense of community, or a desire to hear more of the Good News of Jesus, the Gospel.

They are all cordially invited to inquire about the Catholic Christian Faith by meeting with Sr. Francine, FMA.  This is their opportunity to ask questions about “things Catholic” such as what do Catholics believe and what do Catholics do? This is their opportunity to raise the issues that are on their minds or in their hearts. This is their chance to get information with no commitment!

Those who have never been baptized can investigate what it means to be Christian. Those baptized in another Christian tradition can explore the process to come into full communion with the Catholic Church. And those baptized Catholic as infants but never raised as Catholic can learn about being Confirmed and receiving the Eucharist.
The first step begins with you, today, as you invite your family members, friends, co-workers, or others to explore what it means to be Catholic.”  If they are interested in finding out a bit more, invite them to contact Sr. Francine Guilmette, FMA - 514 648-8279
