Institutional Subscriptions

Does your institution (parish, school, etc.) already have a subscription? » Sign up for free

Whether you are signing up with or without a partnering diocese, this $300 annual subscription allows all teachers, catechists, catechetical leaders, administrators, parents, and interested individuals within your institution (parish, school, apostolate, religious order, etc.) to be formed using the vast array of workshops offered here.  The site is designed to be intuitive and easy to use for all types of learners.  Once subscribed, your institution can onboard for free as many people as desired within your community, and leaders may mentor any of these individuals one-to-one or in groups.  An institution can also view reports on individuals’ progress, evaluations, demographics, and assessments of training effectiveness, and can use the site to keep all records digitally, both from this platform’s workshops and from any formation/training taken elsewhere.

  • Parishes subscribe for $300 annually.  Mission parishes are granted access for free (they can participate under the subscription for their mother parish or register on their own).
  • Regional or independent schools (elementary or high school) gain access to FranciscanAtHome.com with their own $300 annual subscription.  Schools directly and solely operated by a single parish are included for free under that parish’s annual subscription.
  • Other types of institutions (religious orders, apostolates, hospitals, colleges, social service entities, etc.) gain access with their own $300 annual subscription.  Please contact us to discuss the particular features we’ve designed for these types of organizations.

Tracks visible online now are those that have enough workshops posted to be “open” (many more are then added over time after we open a track with its first few workshops).  We currently have 19 ministry tracks being developed with over 800 formation workshops in total to be filmed and over 300 filmed thus far.  The post-production on those workshops involves much time and care to make them beautifully engaging and effective formation tools.  We appreciate your patience as we build this wonderful work to form those who form others!

Here is a list of our ministry formation tracks.  Feel free to view a sample workshop.

The following resources may be helpful for parishes, schools, & other institutions seeking to use our workshops:

We also have a set of helpful video tutorials and answers to questions.

For your convenience, we allow an institution to pay by credit card or by check. Whether you choose to pay by check or credit card, you will be given access to the ministry formation workshops immediately upon completion of the registration process.

Diocesan Partnerships

The Catechetical Institute (C.I.) of Franciscan University of Steubenville will provide access to all institutions (parishes and/or schools) that are associated with a partnering diocese to Franciscan University’s learning management system at FranciscanAtHome.com.  This site is designed to be intuitive and easy to use for all types of learners and hosts an ever-expanding collection of ministry formation workshops designed to meet the needs of learners in the diocese in all ministry areas, including parents.  Once parishes and schools are onboarded to the online platform, a diocesan partnership provides access for an unlimited number of learners to all tracks and workshops currently posted and available, as well as those added to the system during the course of a diocese’s ongoing partnership.

For a diocese to use these resources, there is no diocesan fee.  Individual parishes or schools pay a $300 annual subscription.  Anyone associated with a subscribing parish or school would then be able to use the entire system for free, linked through your diocese’s page, customized to look the way you desire.  Feel free to visit the landing pages of our many partner dioceses by looking at the drop-down list clickable at the top right of this page called “Partnering Dioceses.”

FranciscanAtHome.com access includes the diocese’s ability to:

  • Allow an unlimited number of people from subscribing parishes and schools to become learners on the system 
  • Recruit, onboard onto FranciscanAtHome.com, and train using this site any mentors that a diocese engages 
  • Create and manage relationships between mentors and learners for the diocese
  • Create and maintain a custom diocese-specific landing page on FranciscanAtHome.com
  • Create custom tracks and populate those tracks with collections of CI workshops on FranciscanAtHome.com 
  • View reports available on FranciscanAtHome.com for individuals’ progress, evaluations, demographic reports, and assessments of training effectiveness 
  • Generate custom certificates and keep all records digitally, both from this platform’s workshops and from any formation/training taken elsewhere

We also have an extensive set of helpful video tutorials and answers to questions.

If you would like to observe a Catechetical Institute Formation Day in another diocese (highly recommended!), you can view our calendar here.

We are happy to give any diocesan officials full and free access to our ministry formation platform to look around through a link specific to your diocese.  Please contact us for a link to gain this type of access and to discuss your needs and how we can serve you…
