The Catholic Education Center offers online courses for Catechist
Formation, Ministry Training, and Adult Faith Formation.
Catechist Formation courses focus on the Church's Teaching
and Catechetical Documents with an emphasis on classroom
Ministry Training courses focus on specific catechetical
ministries, and how they can be implemented in a parish
Adult Faith Formation courses are more general interest
topics including Scripture, Parenting, Apologetics, Morality
and special topics.
All our courses have 10 classes, and each should take
about an hour to complete. Each class has a printable
"lecture" that can be read online (including an e-reader) or
printed to be read on-the-go or used in a classroom. As well
each class has a quiz for immediate feedback to review
Many course also have PowerPoint review presentations
(great for your classroom), classroom ideas and discussion
All our courses are submitted to the Diocese of
Arlington for content review. All of our instructors
sign an Oath of Fidelity to the Magisterium!
Our instructors have experience serving the Church
in their course-specialty. They passionately share
their knowledge, wisdom and experience with
others. They are available for questions, and often
recommend additional reading for those interested
in learning more.
We issue transcripts the first week of each month.
All our online courses can be offered on site.
