The Catechetical Institute’s Online Formation Ministry Formation

At the Franciscan University of Steubenville



Young adults have a lot to bring to the table of evangelization and catechesis. They are or could be our catechetical leaders or youth ministers of tomorrow. If you are interested in learning more the Franciscan University might be for you. There are various areas of catechesis that are covered by Franciscan University.
The Diocese of Brooklyn has a special collaboration with Franciscan University of Steubenville’s Catechetical Institute!
We have chosen to partner with Franciscan University in order to give authentically Catholic resources that help to form those within your parish or school who are forming others. The catechists, RCIA teams, parish catechetical leaders, school teachers, and parents of your parish or school will have unlimited access to the Catechetical Institute’s online workshops in the comfort of their own homes.

The flexibility of the Catechetical Institute allows a diocese to choose the capacity in which to use these resources. Whether the diocese chooses to use the formation workshops as a part of the certification process or as an on-going formation for their staff and volunteers, all the workshops available on our learning platform are available to every person.

Everyone can sign up for $4.99 a month. The courses are eligible for Living and Leading by Faith credits. The following tracks are;
• Catechist (CT) Track
• Catechumenal Ministry (RCIA) Track
• Parish Catechetical Leader (PCL) Track
• Youth Ministry (YM) Track
