Catechist Certification

The Diocese of Crookston has partnered with My Catholic Faith Delivered to provide catechetical leaders with ongoing formation and certification through interactive, user-friendly online courses at a discounted price. My Catholic Faith Delivered combines Catholic content with innovative technology. It is a unique web-based platform which enhances knowledge and understanding while fostering a full, conscious and active Catholic Faith.

“The definitive aim of catechesis is to put people not only in touch but in communion, in intimacy, with Jesus Christ: only He can lead us to the love of the Father in the Spirit and make us share in the life of the Holy Trinity.” (Catechesi Tradendae 5)

Certification of Catechetical Leaders

Faith Foundations is a 28 lesson course teaching content regarding the four Pillars of the Catholic faith. It is a perfect course for catechists, parish ministers and other interested adults wanting to learn more about the doctrinal foundations of our faith. You can choose from two different paths:

1) All 28 foundational lessons covering the core teachings of the faith
2) Breakdown into 3 mini courses based on the four parts of the Catechism of the Catholic Church 

This, along with the completion of our 8 lesson course, Catechist 101, which focuses on methods to teach the faith and the spiritual qualities needed to be a successful catechist, comprise most of the Diocese of Crookston Basic Catechist Certificate.
