Additional Information

The Catechetical Institute is an online learning platform designed to help form those who are working to fulfill the mission of the Catholic Church.  We invite every parishioner to use this resource, whether you are a catechist, parent, school teacher, youth minister, adult group leader, or volunteer.  It is NOT the same as Formed, nor is it a Bible Study or RCIA program.

The CI provides workshops consisting of short video clips and tasks which can be completed individually or as a group.  Tasks are reflective challenges that actively engage you in the learning process.  The goal is to help you better know and love the faith so that you can more effectively share the faith with others.
