East Side Child & Youth Ministry (ESCYM) is the collaborative religious education program of four parishes on the east side of Milwaukee (Our Lady of Divine Providence, Saints Peter & Paul, Three Holy Women, and The Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist).

Christian Initiation Program for children
Resources for families
Social activities for youth

Catechists – We are looking for new catechists for classes beginning in September. Perhaps God is calling you to this rewarding ministry. We begin in late September and go through mid-May. We follow the school calendar with time off at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Catechists will be provided materials and support for teaching. We also offer formation opportunities at various times during the year.
