Course Description in Brief:

The Certificate in Catechetical Leadership provides a foundational education in theology, catechetics, and leadership for catechetical leaders so that they can think and act with the heart and mind of the Church. We will provide you with the tools to discern the diverse methods and approaches to parish organization and ministries. We will meet virtually (through Zoom) twice a week for lecture, discussion, and the sharing of best practices.   

Each course will consist in attending 4 sessions over a 2-week period. The format for the sessions will be a combination of course lecture with seminar-style discussion on topics, readings, and practical application.  Along with the reading for the course, there will be a short reflection and application assignment due at the end of the week following the course.
