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
Any interested lay minister, deacon, or priest may sign up for
our online scripture study, which includes personal study as well
as online discussion with other interested people. The
upcoming bible study will take up the Gospel of Luke and will use
study materials from the well-known Little Rock Scripture Study
