WHAT catechists proclaim.
In order to be an effective catechist, one must know what to teach. In order to impart our Catholic Faith in an authentic and faithful manner one must grow in the knowledge of Scripture, deeper in faith, prayer and the moral life. "Doctrinal" courses aim to help the catechist grow in the understanding of the faith in various areas. There are 6 areas of study. In order to complete the "Doctrinal" certificate, catechists much complete all 6 courses.
Prayer and Spirituality
Liturgy and Sacraments
Live workshops - Live workshops for doctrinal certification are offered through our Spotlight program. Workshops are presented by experts in each of the specific areas of theological study.
Registration will open soon!

“The definitive aim of catechesis
is to put people not only in touch
but in communion, in intimacy,
with Jesus Christ.”
~ St. Pope John Paul II, CT, 5 ~
"This synthesis of faith should be such as to help the catechist to mature in his own faith and enable him/her to offer an explanation for the present hope in this time of mission." ~ GDC, 241
