What is Franciscan at Home? 

FraniciscanAtHome.com is an online learning platform that is specifically designed to help form those who are working in the ministry of the Catholic Church - clergy, catechists, school teachers, youth ministers, adult group leaders, volunteers, even (and especially) parents. There are currently over 200 workshops available on this platform, with new releases each month!

Whether you would like to simply learn more about the faith or want to be a better catechist, teacher, or parent, this is a top notch resource for you!

Franciscan At Home is a resource created by the Franciscan University Catechetical Institute out of the renowned Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio.

Officially launched in 2016, the Franciscan University Catechetical Institute seeks to serve Christ and his Church by forming those Catholics entrusted with the formation of others. This includes priests, deacons, and parents, as well as lay ecclesial ministers, teachers, religious, and parish catechists.  Through conferences, online courses, personal support, and new catechetical resources, we make the riches of the Catholic faith more available and accessible to clergy and lay catechists alike.

Franciscan At Home is made free to all parishes in the Diocese of Arlington! 

Tracks include:

Eucharistic Renewal Track, First Proclamation and Evangelization, Forming Faith At Home, Ministry to Parents, RCIA, Catholic Schools, Young Adults, Mentor Formation, Four Pillars of the Catholic Church and so much more. There are tracks in Spanish as well. 

Individual Workshops are taught by professors from Franciscan University such as Scott Hahn, John Bergsma, Bob Rice, Petroc Willey, Joseph White, Bill Keimig and other professors and priest from around the world. 

Please note: We use the Catholic Education Center and Christendom College for Catechist Certification.
