The Catechist Training Center (known as KTS after it's pidgin name, "Katekis Trening Senta") prepares Catholic men and women to serve as catechists in the parishs and outstations of the Diocese of Mendi. With almost 350 outstations and only around 30 priests in the diocese, the ministry of the catechist and other lay ministers is very important. Catechists serve many important ministries, for example, the preparation of parishioners for the reception of the Sacraments. They are often recognized as leaders in their communities.
The Catechist Training Center is located in Mendi.
