Franciscan at Home

Online learning at your convenience

The Catechetical Institute at Franciscan University exists to train and support the key catechists in any situation—priests, deacons, parents, or laity, whether professional or volunteer. Through conferences, online workshops, videos, audio, personal mentorship, and a wealth of resources produced by Franciscan University, all involved in the work of catechesis will find new ideas, new approaches, new techniques, and a new confidence to do the work of catechesis.

Officially launched in 2016, the Franciscan University Catechetical Institute seeks to serve Christ and his Church by forming those Catholics entrusted with the formation of others. This includes priests, deacons, and parents, as well as lay ecclesial ministers, teachers, religious, and parish catechists.

Through conferences, online courses, personal support, and new catechetical resources, we make the riches of the Catholic faith more available and accessible to clergy and lay catechists alike.

To this end, our expert faculty and experienced lay mentors work in close partnerships with both dioceses and catechists, offering individualized formation tools designed to meet a variety of catechetical needs.
