Participate in our GUILD WEBINAR SERIES

The Catechetical Institute is providing a FREE and fantastic 2024 webinar series to serve the Church!  We now have over 200 outstanding ministry formation workshops available online at www.FranciscanAtHome.com, ready to grow anyone in ministry roles for the good of the souls you serve.  We currently serve over 120 partner dioceses, and over 40,000 people in ministry roles across 131 countries.
 
But we want to do more to build leaders and create networks of supportive relationships to foster creative approaches and best practices in a myriad of ministry areas.  To that end, we invite you to join us for our 2024 webinar series – please put these on your calendar and share them with those you lead!
 
Based on your feedback, and the many pressing needs of the field, we are offering nearly 50 webinars over the coming year on relevant topics to help support you in ministry, including one each month in Spanish.
 
We greatly look forward to seeing you for one or many of these free webinars!  Links for each webinar will be sent out proximal to each event and are below as well.  Please share this with others in your parishes, schools, and among your colleagues!  All times below are in Eastern Time U.S.
