To be a disciple of Jesus Christ is to seek conversion - an
ongoing process by which we enter more fully into the Kingdom of
God and serve others in and through the Church.
The Online Formation Program supports this conversion process
for our students, alumni and others interested in growing in their
faith. For lay ministers, each formation activity is planned
to meet one or more of the National Certification Standards for Lay Ecclesial
Ministers, approved by the United States Conference of Catholic
Bishops in November 2011.
An online audit allows you to access all the content of one of
our 14-week graduate courses (weekday format) for just $75.
Registration enables you to download all of the video and/or
MP3 audio lecture recordings, syllabus, PowerPoint presentations,
handouts and other relevant files. The online audit can be used for
personal enrichment or, in many cases, to meet continuing education

Online Reading Community
Our online reading community program helps persons involved
in or interested in lay ministry, but separated by space and time,
to join together as an online formation community. Together the
community will read and share reflections on a book or other form
of media. The reading and reflection are prayerful activities that
seek to act under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is a chance
to grow in our love of God and of our brothers and sisters as we
seek to work with Christ in establishing His Kingdom.
Online Scripture Study
All people of faith are welcome to sign up for our online
Scripture study, which includes personal study as well as online
discussion with other interested people. The upcoming Bible study
groups will take up St. Paul's letters to the Corinithians and the
Book of Exodus, using study materials from Collegeville Bible
