The women of the St. Angela's Circle at St. Ann Parish in Cadillac, Michigan hosted the first School Catechism Bee in 2011 at St. Ann Catholic School, Cadillac, Michigan. This event served as the impetus for establishing a diocesan-wide program for the children attending our Catholic Schools.
Schools are not required to hold competitions at all three levels, but all are expected to facilitate at least one Catechism Bee at the 6th grade (Advanced Level), according to the grade level configuration of their school.
One 6th grader from each individual school will represent their school at the annual Diocesan Catechism Bee.
