Youth Ministry Catechesis at ten hours a year

The annual last minute call for catechists was in the bulletin at our parish (St. Alphonsus, Greendale) back on August 31, 2014 (no longer online).
"These classes meet on Sunday evenings one a month, 6:30-8:30 p.m., in the Parish Ministry Center and the Outreach Building. There are only five teaching classes."
Add to one evening session a couple two hour sessions Sunday morning and a couple more in the afternoon, and the whole year of Christian Formation classroom instruction could be done in a day.

To me, that seems like maybe 5-10% of what's needed. On the bright side, there have been past years with as little as six hours.

P.S. The Parish Ministry Center is the former Convent and the Outreach Building the former Rectory.
