Adult Faith Formation

Knowing the Catholic faith is central to living a life close to Jesus and the Church, and to being able to share with others — to answer questions from co-workers or our children. But many adults today don’t know their faith well but want to learn — this page and is specifically designed to help adult Catholics today learn more about their faith using simple and accessible online and in-parish resources. Please explore!

I Want to Grow in My Faith
Need to know more about your faith? Want to grow closer to God? Below are some easy to use and accessible online and in-parish options for all Catholics to grow in their faith. The online courses are easy to use, affordable and can be done at your own pace. Courses are also taught live in parishes across the archdiocese. 

I am Seeking Certification
Thank you for teaching the faith in your parish or school! Archdiocesan certification is a great way to grow in your knowledge and faith so you can better teach your students. The revised archdiocesan catechist certification process includes elements to help catechists/teachers know the faith, live their faith and be able to effectively teach it to others. Prior Hearts Aflame certifications remain valid, though those certified are encouraged to continue their faith formation; those who began the certification process before December 2, 2012 need only to complete their remaining courses through Foundations to be certified. 

I am a Parish Leader
Planning adult formation for your parish community? Do you know that many cannot come out to evening programs? In collaboration with My Catholic Faith Delivered the Archdiocese is pleased to offer a variety of excellent online learning opportunities (in addition to in-parish live programs) for adults to learn the faith. All online courses have the option for usage by a group, for online facilitation and discussion, and individual use depending on your parish needs. All courses are in English and Spanish with group discounts available.
