About the Catechetical Institute
The Catechetics Program at Franciscan University of Steubenville exists to prepare students to join the "army of catechists" called for by the late Pope Saint John Paul II, eager to help the Church in her mission of making all nations disciples of Jesus Christ. We combine a thorough study of Sacred Scripture, Sacred Tradition, and magisterial documents with training in proper and effective pedagogical techniques to help our students grasp the intelligibility and coherence of divine truths, and to pass them along faithfully.
