Ongoing Formation Through the Catechetical Institute

Week 1: Introduction to the Catechetical Institute.  Here Bill Keimig explains the history and background experience that led to the creation of the Institute.   It’s long, but the end wraps it up nicely!

Week 2: Key Elements of the CI Formation System

Week 3: How to mentor in an online context
