Four Pillars of the Catechism (FPC) Track

Directed to any person engaged in teaching ministries at any level, this collection of workshops is the starting place in developing a mastery of the teachings of the Church founded by Jesus Christ. This comprehensive track not only offers the key doctrinal essentials in teaching the Catholic faith, but also fosters the ability to pass on those teachings in all their rigor and vigor to other souls. Unlike normal presentations of the four pillars of the Catechism, this track thoroughly and seamlessly integrates catechesis (the teachings) with catechetics (how to pass on those teachings effectively to others). For those taking this track, it will provide a strong systematic understanding of the truth, as well as a sharp ability to analyze and open its goodness and beauty to hearts and minds called to the Father's love.

We recommend to take these courses in the order they appear, although it is not required to do so.
